A skilled politician often navigates the art of persuasion. More crucially, they exhibit unwavering belief in their statements, regardless of contrary evidence. This hilarious interview by local councilor Mr Davidson on ITN Archive has him showcasing this talent on display. In the interview, he is arguing in favor of the safety of a particular road while just behind him, cars are crashing on the very same pathway. Despite that, he remains confident and cheeky to the end. His confidence is so compelling that viewers might second-guess the reality of the collisions happening behind him.

The interview recently went viral after being uploaded on ITN's YouTube channel. The network was covering the construction of a barrier aimed at making a particular "section of the notorious A19 a safer road." The Department of Transport was firm on its take that "the dual carriageway isn't outstandingly bad as far as road safety is concerned." Though plenty of evidence had already piled up to justify the danger A19 posed to people, the governmental bodies were resolute in their assertion that the road was safe. Local Councillor Mr. Davidson confidently stated, "I will not accept that it's a highly dangerous road."

Davidson goes on to justify that the reputation acquired by the road was unfair. Every road has its hazards. "The road, obviously like other roads, gives cause for concern when accidents do occur..." Just as he was bestowing the road with appreciation, his whole argument was falling apart behind him. Initially, a blue car sped toward a green hill, followed by sudden collisions among other vehicles. Fortunately, no one was injured, but it was solid proof that the road was indeed hazardous. It did not have any impact on Davidson's resolve as he cheekily pointed at the mess and finished off.

The comment section was in splits, seeing the interview. @user-iy3dd7oo7k shared their favorite moments from the hilarious comedy of errors and wrote, "The eye rolling and the immediate crash afterward is pure gold." @foxredt2 loved how the blue car got out of the situation and commented, "That blue car driver was smart and fast as hell. He knew drivers behind him would crash into the cars in front." @sammykewlguy wanted to go to the root of the problem and commented, "It’s an amusingly ironic moment for sure. The real question is why did that accident event happen? Was the road slick? Looks fine but looks deceive." 


In a funny roadside scenario, a Seattle gas station proves it day in and out through their signboard that regularly posts cheeky jokes, as businesses are no less when it comes to getting out a hearty laugh. "In October of 2005, we converted our auto repair shop into an ExtraMile convenience store, and suddenly we had a problem. It had always been easy to think of useful messages to put on the sign for things like service promotions and store specials and the like. But with the ExtraMile, there were no more cars to fix and the place was plastered with store specials. So we decided to do something different," the gas station reveals on its website. Some of their best jokes are "If you don't remember their name, take them to Starbucks" and "Astronauts use Linux because you can't open windows in space."
