Baby Driver, the high-speed stunt driving action thrill-ride that’s got a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes because who doesn’t love a car chase movie with a kickass soundtrack, is causing some unforeseen changes in its audiences.
Namely, it’s making everyone who sees Baby Driver believe that they, too, are the Baby Driver.
Reports are emerging across Twitter of people peeling out of theatre carparks post-session at approximately one bazillion KPH, presumably while indulging in vivid heist fantasies.
or planning the sequel: Baby Passenger
Yes, it is dangerous; yes, it is against the law. It is also… it’s pretty funny.
POLICE OFFICER : You know why I pulled you over?
ME : Because I was speeding
PO : And wearing head phones
ME : Sorry, I just saw Baby Driver

Update: Baby Driver does make you want to learn how to illegally speed race and swerve around vehicles in a parking deck.

the worst part about my car being totaled is that I just saw Baby Driver and can’t crash it in a high speed chase right now
