There was one man who used to walk around and pretend he was driving a truck. Making the noises and steering, reversing whilst beeping etc. He used to get served at the drive-through at mcdonalds. Laughing out loud


I've heard many a story about this guy - including one from a mate's dad that involved him getting a group of shoppers to help him reverse park his particularly unwieldy imaginary articulated lorry into an ASDA loading bay.
I actually played a basketball game at Bridgwater college sports hall the other day - i don't think it will have changed much since you've were last there.
Heard about this guy as well - the ex went to Bridgewater - apparently he used to pull into petrol forecourts to refuel. Don't want to know what he tried to do with the pump.

I don't get how that was a prelude to a marriage proposal, just seems like he was showing off.

some local boxer was fighting about 2 minutes from his home and did a similar video for his ring entrance that made it look like he was walking from his home

Yeah, I get that, I'm not a retard. I understand the novelty of seeing your boyfriend on the screen of the cinema you are about to watch a film in, but he could have made his film slightly more relevant to them. Just seems like a waste of 5 months to make a video of himself showing off. Might as well have got up in front of the cinema audience, done a load of keep ups or a magic trick or anything else to show off, then asked her to marry him.
