He just needs help wiping it up.
A Florida man was seen in a viral video using his hand to operate his windshield wipers during a rainstorm.
But now the driver who shot that popular music video wants to wipe the slate clean after initially viewing the incident as a joke.
He is now hoping to find the driver and raise money through a GoFundMe page to help fix the car, according to local reports.
The video, viewed thousands of times on social media, shows a man dangerously operating his windshield wipers manually with his left arm extended out the window during a torrential downpour so he can see the road while driving.
Brad Allison, who filmed the strange interaction, said he “first thought it was really funny and then I also thought it was sad,” he told ABC 7.
“I’m stuck with no wipers and had to use RainX and I mean, I know what it is and give it credit for trying to get to where it needed to go. But I would like to see him get there a little safer, ”he told the outlet.
In response, Allison is asking for the public’s help in identifying the driver to help them improve their ride, and even launched a GoFundMe page to fund repairs.
“Perfect world, I would love to see him get into a new car,” Allison said. “At least put some windshield wipers on his car and a new headlight.”
“It’s funny how you can look at it two different ways and go from wow that’s hilarious to wow, maybe he needs a helping hand,” Allison said.
