Sometimes it’s better to swallow your pride than get the fire smacked out ‘ya, as a Subaru-driving Colorado resident learned the hard way after an orange-bearded assailant slapped him like Rick James in that Dave Chappelle skit.

Lesson learned: white glasses + red beard + blue Subaru is a recipe for trouble.

While the camera-wielding girlfriend handled the situation with relative poise and definitely scores points for not being hysterical, if she was really in her man’s corner she would have told him not to roll down the window as Bigfoot came barrelin’ up looking for trouble. And she does get docked for the vertical video, but nobody’s perfect.
