What Happens When Five People On The Same Motorcycle Get Hit By A Car?

There’s a punchline here that I can’t quite find. Maybe you can do it.

This happened last week in Sanmen, Zhejiang province, and has lately been making the news rounds on Chinese TV (h/t Alicia). At the end of the video after the jump (original, longer Youku version), the news anchor brings in someone else — ala SNL’s Weekend Update, really — who proceeds to criticize everyone involved while calling on authorities to increase penalties for people who run red lights. By the way, the five on the bike suffered varying degrees of injuries, none life-threatening.

Recently this clip got picked up by Beijing TV, which, as we’ve documented here, is kind of famous for a show called “Traffic Light” that analyzes (over-analyzes?) traffic mishaps, from the funny to the fatal. You might remember that BJC’s first installment of Traffic Light featured scooters getting hit with cars as well, set to No. 43 Baojia Street’s “I Really Need You.”

For the hell of it, here’s Traffic Light No. 1 again; for Youku version, click here.

    Did you ever play Carmageddon? Great old game for the PC where you scored points for running over pedestrians in the most gruesome fashion. I seem to recall that there were extra bonus points if you did a “donut” with the pedestrians’ blood in the road immediately after impact. I wonder how many points a motorcycle with five passengers would be… Definitely need to consider a localized China version of that game.
