Star driver pranks instructors

A professional motorsport driver from Malaysia went into disguise to help prank a group of driving school instructors on their first day at the job.

In the viral video, Leona Chin dresses up as an unassuming teenager in her “brother’s” Nissan Silvia S15 and starts each lesson by driving poorly. 

As the patience of each of the driving instructors wears thin, and they appear on the brink of giving up, Chin slams on the accelerator and starts drifting.

The reactions of the instructors are priceless and the footage has been viewed more than 71 million times since it first appeared online in 2015.

Once Chin stops drifting the victims of the joke jump out of the car either angry or terrified. 

However, after she explains to them it is just a prank organised by Maxman.TV most of them seem able to see the funny side.
