Man tries to convince girlfriend not to leave him by hanging onto her car hood

We don’t tend to see people balancing on the hoods of cars unless we’re watching an action movie, but one man was recently caught on camera doing just that.

Adding to the excitement, the man yells from the hood, “What are you doing? Are you trying to go to jail? Unlock the door!” as the driver slows to a halt. Obviously, the driver did not open the door. In that situation, who would?

According to the video’s description, the person in the car was the man’s girlfriend, and he was trying to stop her from leaving him.

Here’s a tip for any guys out there: This is not a good way to woo a lady. If you’re at the point of hanging onto the hood of her car while she refuses to unlock the doors, it’s either time for her to get a restraining order or for you to leave her alone and give her some time to cool off.
