A Grand Rapids, Michigan man has gone TikTok viral while driving an RC car on the road. If you don't know what an RC car is - I did not either (until now).

An RC car is a radio-controlled car. According to the internet, RC cars are miniature model cars, vans, buses, or buggies that can be controlled from a distance using a specialized transmitter or remote.

Wrap your head around that. Over 5.1 million people have watched a video of an RC car on the street in Grand Rapids. If you are surprised by that, you are not alone - even the person that made the TikTok video was shocked.

The first thing I thought of when I watched this particular video was - isn't this dangerous? It is and that is mentioned at the beginning of one of the RC car videos. What you will see below is a video of three separate instances where the RC car was on the road.

The man controlling it makes it look easy, but I am guessing it took some practice. Spoiler alert, the car does indeed wreck. That made me wonder exactly how much an RC car sells for. I did some investigating (Google) and found prices ranging from $29.99 to $1,399.99.

As someone that knows zero about RC cars, I don't know if the one in the video was expensive or not, I do know the owner opted not to eat so he could buy another one. Proof that over 5 million views is worth going hungry for.
