All right. I read about this guy

who was driving out

on the highway out there.

And he sees this light ahead of him,

around 500 meters,

and at first he thinks it's a truck

or a semi-trailer or something,

'cause the light's really bright,

like glowing orange and shit.

- Yeah.

- But as he gets closer,

he realizes that the light's

about 10 meters off the ground,

just hanging in mid-air.

So he's scared, freaking out.

And then he hears this... crack!

Like an explosion.

- That was supposed to scare us.

- I know, it's scary.

But he did. He heard this crack.

Like an explosion of a jet.

And itjust took off into the sky,

straight up like a rocket.

And then as soon as it was gone,

his carjust stopped

in the middle of the road,

and it was totally silent.

He was just sitting there,

staring up at the stars.

In the middle of nowhere.

- Hey...

- No reason. Just stopped.

- Is that a true story?

- I read it.

You've got something

dripping off your lip there.


Oh, it's all right.

It's just bullshit.

- No, bullshit you, mate!

- [Laughs]

[Male laughs]

What's all this shit?

- Oh, for the tent.

- For the tent.

- Here, I'll do that. Start on the tent.

- No, you do the tent.

I don't know what you two

would do without me.


- I didn't finish that.

- Oh, sorry.

- This is it.

- I finished it for you.

- What?

- I didn't know what to do!

- All right?

- [Male] Yep.

[Dog whines]

Now we just got a six-hour drive.

Who's driving first?

- Oh!

- Who's driving first?

I don't know.

I'll go in the back.

- Is that all right with you?

- Yeah.

- I'll go in the back.

- Do you want to drive?


[Car speeding]

[Woman 1] We're here, guys.

- [Male laughs]

- [Engine turns off]

Well, well, well.

Hey, um, can I have the keys?
