Video: How not to pull off a powerslide
Thankfully, most people wait to try it out on the track or on private grounds, however this bright spark decides to pull one on a public road.
It's a bit of poetic justice then that he can't slide for toffee and instead launches his Nissan 200SX into the kerb.
Luckily, there was no one around to get hurt and even luckier for us, someone was on hand to film the hapless antics.
The buckled wheel is only a nod to the more serious damage this has probably caused to the driveshaft and steering and it could be a while before he tries again.
Check out the video below for a laugh this afternoon.
