Smash Mouth's Steve Harwell

Smash Mouth's Steve Harwell (Joe Cingrana/WCBS-FM)

Man Backs Out Of Car Accident Thanks To Smash Mouth Lyrics?

"Get myself away from this place" has a whole new meaning now!

February 7, 2019

This video that was filmed back in December 2018 has been making the rounds and we have to say, we're impressed.

A man filming his trip pulls up to a stop light while listening to Smash Mouth's "All Star." For some reason, right when Steve Harwell sings the lyrics "Get myself away from this place" the driver decides to back up away from the intersection, positioning himself behind and next to a van. 

We can't tell why.

Then, out of nowhere, an accident happens and one of the cars come to rest RIGHT WHERE HE MOVED FROM.

There are two morals to this story: Listen to Smash Mouth more, and whenever you hear the lyrics "Get myself away from this place" -- follow Steve's instructions and go somewhere, anywhere else than where you are at that very moment.
