They often say that money doesn't buy you happiness. That may be true, but there are a lot of jolly multimillionaires out there that argue against that notion. What is fairly certain, though, is that money can't buy you intelligence. Presumably, it's intelligence that earns you money, but sometimes there's a whole lot of money and not a whole lot of brains.
The Bugatti Veyron has long been serving as a very visual case in point. Take this guy that careened the $2-million supercar into a marsh. Or this band of bumbling thieves that not only got caught, but got a tax bill for half a mil. This guy didn't even make it out of the driveway. Heck, not a full week ago, one Bugatti owner decided that "red chrome" was a concept that needed trying out. Not smart.
Luckily for the latest Bugatti bungler, he didn't crash the car, or double the speed limit, or get convicted of any sort of felony. Unfortunately for him..er..them, they happened to get caught helplessly fumbling around with the fabric roof of the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport on a very public street. They are now a small part of the greater legend of Bugatti failure.
Not just one, not even just two, but three guys fumble around with the fabric top for nearly two minutes and still may have messed it all up. I've never owned a Veyron, but it looks like a pretty straightforward task. Heck, the fabric roof is designed specifically to set-up fast in the event you encounter some rain on your Veyron joyride. These three guys just don't seem to add up to a whole, though.
On top of that, it doesn't even appear to be raining.
To be fair to them, this wouldn't be much of a video clip if it had happened on any other car. But since it happened on the mechanization of conspicuous consumption and human error that is the Bugatti Veyron, it's worth a cheap laugh.
