VV is basically just talking to himself now on his stories he has fully lost the plot lol wonder if we will ever see a Shmee rap laugh but in all seriousness when VV started rapping it was just beyond cringe vomit

Relative of mine worked as a tax inspector. According to them, 99% of people who ended up being investigated were due to rubbing people’s noses in their wealth (from fiddling) or trying to screw someone else over and having the favour returned.

Sounds like this internet feud could easily escalate badly for him.

Never watched any of his content but he comes across as an absolute melt on that Instagram stuff.

The MOT history on cars like these is interesting. You know, has it failed a lot. This car is hooky for sure. The driver says he’s just driven down from Scotland. They’re in England. I wonder how many miles that trip was wink. Since June 2019 it’s accumulated just 150 miles.
He says he has just travelled down to pick the car up from MRC in Banbury.

The car will have been at MRC for a while I would have thought.
150 miles in 7 months. Ok
If the car has been at MRC having work done, why is this so hard to believe?

Don't watch any of the Americans but..... is this dispute generating good views? If so presume that it is fake.

Not even been an official video from VV or DDE yet but Life of Palos has made a few videos, which are actually really well balanced and worth watching

I don't think it's fake because there's a lot of personal stuff been posted about Damon including an audio clip of him saying the N word. Pretty messed up if it is all for views.

"The Shmee150 of tyres".

Now I'm going to have to start every intro with "hey guys" and have thumbnails with invisible fish.

Still, a great compliment biggrinhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uus5eZ6fJJg

I would expect all of those trucks to have dash cams, I think it's only a matter of time before someone knocks on some doors.

The owner was on about sitll pulling after a certain speed, I reckon they must have been close on 200mph at some point in that video, what sort of mess gets left behind when a 2 ton Audi hits the back of a wagon at 200mph?

I really hope you are right. I mean, even the owner was s**t scared at one point and he specced the car. These people need off the road.

Man Like Ricky Innit Bruv should see the photos and also high speed crashes where they hit another car. I couldn’t give two fks if he turns himself into dog meat but he’s absolutely going to kill someone else, be it a passenger or someone in a car they hit soon and he’s going away for a long time.
He's promoting "Win your Dream Car with BOTB" don't you work for them?

Yes, though my views expressed are entirely my own. And I've made my opinions very known to them about working with him.

Ah ok fair enough, seems like an odd selection to me since he features crazy modified cars and ludicrous driving on his channel but I guess to a certain demographic that is aspirational.

I split time between Vancouver and London and lets just say Damon burnt a lot of bridges in Vancouver. One my cars was featured in one of his videos around the time he bought his 580 and lets just say he used a lot of people to gain followers and when he got big he told them to F off. This includes dealers, local supercar owners and others who would allow Damon to come around and stick a camera in their face and let him film. One can argue these people were also looking for publicity but it was more Damon hounding people to film content.

I haven't seen the guy for a while now because he rarely comes out to Vancouver when I'm there and just stays on the island for a week before going back to Cali. it's still a big mystery to a lot of us how he's spending most of his time in Cali filming and working without proper work permits. He's playing with fire.
For a channel of this size it is trivial to get a work permit and perhaps he has done it already. I started watching his videos when he was small channel, it was obvious the way he approached this thing... and as of the people that filmed with him they should have know better.

They associate with Beefy....

At least Beefy has shown he’s capable of unbiased opinion. Up until now he’s been doing a very good impression of a BOTB bot.

It's surprising because one imagines magistrates, Oxford dons and country parsons etc would be LLF's more obvious type of guests.
