How did this dude end up jumping off a balcony while soaking wet? 🤣

Earlier this week, a bizarre video started flooding social media showing an anonymous man jumping off a balcony and breaking the windshield of a car as a hotel room overflows with water.

If you haven't seen the hilarious clip yet, you'll want to give it a watch below before hearing about the insane backstory. Prepare to be mad amused and confused. (Language is NSFW.)

Here's what went down...

Prophet Amen Ra, the person who filmed the wild incident, told TMZ that everything started around 7 p.m. at a Studio 6 motel in Commerce, California, located just outside of Los Angeles.

The sound of fire alarms caught Amen Ra's attention and he saw motel workers struggling to get into a room with the door locked shut. They eventually had to smash a window to get inside, but once they pried the door open, water started pouring out like a man-made waterfall.

A Studio 6 employee then tried to wrangle the now infamous balcony-bouncer who was staying in the room, but he was able to break free. With no other escape option, he decided to hop over the second-floor railing before coming down hard on a Nissan Murano. He looks at the camera afterwards like, "I don't know what to tell ya."

Where did all the water come from in the first place? Well, motel workers claim this man turned on all the faucets in the room and busted pipes in the ceiling, leading to $10,000 worth of total damage! Talk about a slippery slope. 🤣

Once the L.A. County Fire and Sheriff's Departments both responded, this dude told them he had no negative intentions. By some miracle, he won't face any charges from the car owner or hotel management either.

This is all too much.
