    Obama-Mobile

    BBC News - Barack Obama's car, nicknamed 'The Beast', gets stuck

    So I know it's not a YouTube clip, but it is a video. This cracks me up every time i watch it. I love the clang of metal as it just grinds to a halt. I also love how they deny it was him. Americans eh?!

    Brilliant.
    I like the way they moved the coach in front to block the view of him getting out.

    I'm watching it again.

    Ace isn't it! It seems they have all these defense systems on it, smoke grenades and tear gas can be fired from the bumper etc and yet a speed bump grinds it to a halt.

    It stops really sudden too, bet it didn't feel too nice to be in it when that happened.

    They need adjustable suspention on it for things like this.
    That would sort it.

    Hasn't N8 got air suspension? Surely he could give them some pointers on how to do it! I bet his A3 has never been grounded on a speed bump

    I'm sure someone was shot for this happening! I really don't like Obama.

    A lot of men in suits and sunglasses getting a flap on!

    I bet someone did get their ass kicked, as soon as the first BMW went over it you could see the limo was going to bottom out - he was pretty vulnerable there - would have been an assassins dream!
