Exiting Cars Like a Bad Ass Motherfucker: Part II

Apparently this has gone viral on Drivetribe, pictures of me exiting cars like a BAMF. And, since you guys were the original crew that asked for it, I’ve been really busy exiting a lot of cars lately. Because I owe everything to Oppo.

I think I’m just going to quite the whole automotive journalism gig altogether, and simply post glamour shots of me getting out of automobiles. It’s a lot easier to do, and seems to be what the internet is expecting from my BAMF mug these days.

Imagine getting so many followers that I can email carmakers and ask them to lend me press cars solely to be seen exiting them. Imagine if carmakers re-engineered their interiors to make sure exiting like a BAMF could be performed more smoothly. Man, that would be a dream come true.

I see myself at a carshow event sitting next to fellow automotive journalists:

Ha! Wouldn’t that be great? Without further do, here is Exiting Cars Like a Bad Ass Motherfucker Part II - the Opposite Lock edition.

Ah yes, the 2017 Volvo S90. It’s a car I like a lot. In this shot I was underneath Québec city’s Chateau Frontenac, and there was a security guard telling me: “sir, you can’t park there, you’re blocking the way”

Then I exited the Volvo.

This one was a taken a while back actually, when I started Clavey’s Corner. The Mazda MX-5 is a great car, but if you’re a BAMF, you’ll have a hard time fitting in it.

The door broke off after I closed it.

Ah yes, the upcoming Civic Type R. We’re all excited for this thing, aren’t we? This was during a special Honda launch event the evening before the 2017 Montreal International Auto Show - and I actually had an audience watching.

I do remember hearing a long silence in the room after exiting this one. Not sure why.

The Subaru Legacy. This was taken in the middle of a public space, where usually a lot of people walk around. Somehow, as Myle and I were shooting this, everyone stopped moving - “hold on everyone, let this man exit his car”.

This is an interesting one, since it was Myle’s idea. I think he liked the idea of me walking straight towards the camera as if I was about to rip it into pieces using my bare hands.

Not sure who’s more bad ass in this, me or that Chrysler.

In this one I was just checking with Myle if this mallfinder was parked properly. Seems like I can’t get away from looking like I’m about to rip someone’s head off.

The Volvo XC90 is probably the most desirable SUV on the market right now. How can I not walk out of this thing with style?

I got an email from Porsche yesterday telling me I can no longer borrow press cars because I drove the Macan on a closed circuit. Perhaps I can send them this shot and have them re-evaluate the situation.
