FROM THIS EPISODE

When it comes to crazy, immoral and stupid decisions, nothing can match a teenager looking for a good time. So it's lucky that a story about teenage drunken brawling, reckless driving, and kidnapping can seem epic and hilarious when you're with your friends telling it 30 years later?


Luke, Andrew and Justin have a story they've been telling at parties and pubs for years about the chaotic and violent car chase they found themselves in, as they were heading home from a moto cross race, when they were 17 years old.
