Don't try to drink and drive, especially when your friend knows martial arts

Drinking and driving under any circumstance is never okay. In 2014, 9,967 people died in drunk driving crashes— that’s one every 53 minutes (MADD). When this man’s friend relentlessly attempts to drive drunk and drive his daughter home, he sees no other choice but to show him some tough love— utilizing various fight techniques to send a rather painful message that he cares too much about his friend to allow him to become another drunk driving statistic.

The video starts with two friends in a parking lot arguing. One friend is trying to get into his car after a night of binge drinking and the other is having none of it. The man tells his drunken friend that he has no problem waiting around all night if he has to— he’s willing to do whatever it takes to prevent him from getting behind the wheel.

As the man tries to reason with his friend, he reminds him that he has a daughter to think of: “You’re not going to drive your daughter home. You’re not driving you’re daughter home. And you’re gonna kill your daughter?”

When this fails to work, the man warns his friend that he’s going to punch him in the face if he doesn’t back up. After many failed attempts at reason, the man sees no other way to stop his friend from driving drunk. “I swear to God I love you”, he is heard saying, right before cracking him with an unexpected right hand. After the drunken man attempts to get up off the ground, his friend tells him to relax, takes his back and executes a chokehold— apologizing profusely as he puts his friend to sleep.

That’s what friends are for.
