A video has gone viral of a red Ferrari spotted on the side of the road in Cape Town. A man was captured attempting to pump fuel from a plastic bottle into the tank — a well-known tactic that anyone who’s ever had to walk to a petrol station seeking assistance can relate to.
What many users couldn’t relate to, however, was such a luxurious car undergoing such a ‘struggle’ moment.
However, as many Twitter users pointed out, this story wasn’t a matter of affordability necessarily, but rather an ‘I know my car’ moment overestimated (in terms of how far we ‘know’ our cars can run on a nearly empty tank).
At least we can take comfort in knowing that these moments really do happen to anybody, driving any kind of car.
The relatable rarri strikes Twitter’s running commentary:
Now these are the kind of problems I want in my life…. Not driving around in this tin can with full tank 😅

When Broke People feel good about the Bank Accounts on 0.00 because they saw a Ferrari than ran out of petrol.

how can you laugh at someone who ran outta petrol in a Ferarri 😂 if he sells it he can buy at least 20 of your Polos cash and have enough left to have their tanks all filled all the way up
