What would you do if I told you that you could relive the famous car chase in French Connection or blaze through the streets like an episode of NYPD Blue?
You would be fucking psyched right? I know I would be
Unfortunately, that is not the case for a an unauthorized taxi driver who took five French tourists on a tour de New York in a police chase that lasted 7 miles through downtown and even took out a gate, truck, and a stop sign before it came to a halt.
The guy even jumped out of the van while it was still moving in order to avoid capture.
If I was some French frog visiting NYC for the first time, I would be damn delighted that NYC lived up to the reputation of the one of the most badass cities in the US, and not a place where people parade themselves in front of corny monuments and eat organic hamburgers and shakes.
On the plus side, the tourists dig score some great swag. Can you say a showering of museum passes and Broadway show tickets?
Who knew getting a free high speed chase could come with such great perks?
