Andre Burakovsky Got A Free Lyft When He Mistook A Car Full Of Understanding Black Guys For His Uber
There are a couple factors that make this scenario way funnier than it would have been otherwise. For starters, I would be doing a disservice to the readers if I didn't mention that the guy on the right is so baked that he makes the frozen pizza I fell asleep making seem undercooked. I'm no narc, but either that dude is stoned or he's got way more Chinese lineage than his skin color would suggest. I totalllllly don't know from experience or anything, but everything is funnier when you're high and I would assume that includes strange European dudes sliding into your backseat unannounced.
Secondly, the fact that Andre Burakovsky is a foreigner absolutely had to make this interaction go more smoothly, right? I'm not here to make declarations about how accepting a couple random black guys are of generic white dudes in backwards snapbacks and v-necks, but I think Brad from Arlington's estimated trip time would have been far shorten than that of the Austrian-Born Swede who was undoubtedly quick to turn into the confused tourist. I know how I would react if someone jumped in my car without notice, so I think I'm at liberty to say that their response went from "what the fuck" to full blown hysterics once the Capitals' winger gave them a little taste of his accent. Mix in the fact that he probably dropped that he was an NHLer shortly after and you got a recipe for a hilarious viral story. That said, I wouldn't encourage bros that look like they just stumbled out a frat's basement to go around diverse cities hopping in random whips with the hopes that they their presence is met with 'Like'-worthy laughter and free Lyft's.
