When a stunt goes wrong: check the video and know more about the whole story

The most recent viral video on the internet shows a Porsche Cayenne throwing a smart fortwo right into an Amsterdam channel. But what else do you know about it? Was it a stunt or a real car chase? We can tell you everything, besides showing you the video and how things were going before the stunt went wrong. Check it below.

The accident happen during the shootings of “The Hitman’s Bodyguard“. This is a movie with Ryan Reynolds, Salma Hayek, Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson that is being shot in Amsterdam, London and Sofia. The videos we have used were originally shot by Bry Kate, who lives in Nieuwmarkt, Amsterdam.

We still have no information whether the car was a scenographic object or if it really belonged to one of the residents of the area, but we will keep you guys posted. When you see movie scenes of car chases and all the action that follows them, remember things may go wrong every once in a while. We are glad almost no one was hurt, besides the wooden stairs and the smart fortwo.
