According to this news story, in hip hop culture kids are getting out of moving cars to dance on or around them, even on the freeway, and then try to get back in their vehicles to try and regain control before it crashes into something or runs them over, sometimes very unsuccessfully.

This ghost riding craze appears to have taken off as a result of popular rapper E-40, who has a song called “Tell Me When to Go” where he repeatedly chants, “Go Stupid! Dumb!” and “Ghost ride the whip!” That’s exactly what the kids are doing. In fact, the song can be heard as background to many ghost riding videos found on the Internet. I guess that I am totally late to hear about this trend, since there were blog posts and news stories about this and the “hyphy” movement several months ago.

I am sorry but I was a teenager once and was never this dumb. Dancing on or around an out of control vehicle that weighs more than a ton is just plain stupid. Many would argue that this is just a form of natural selection. I predict that there are going to be a lot of wrecked cars (mostly belonging to mommy and daddy), broken bones, and deaths due this this craziness.


  1. We were “Ghost Riding” about 7 years ago. Back then it was called “Stunnin” Nobody ever got hurt. The reason more people know about it now is that STUPID PEOPLE started doing it and then injuries followed.

    Its not a stupid thing to do, but when dumb people do it, then it becomes dangerous. But thats with anything. An idiot blows his hand off with a firecracker and now I cant buy fireworks for the 4th of july. Dont blame the Activity, blame the people that do it wrong.

  2. Look I think E-40 should be sued for what he put out there about da-ghost-ride-whip! it makes no since, I know for a fact that E-40 did not ride the whip, if he did where’s the proof? hahahaha what a joke E-40, his songs that sometimes do not make since at all.
