Clap Clap Clap Your Hands
2009 At-Risk Survivor
Unconfirmed by Darwin

(November 2009, Poughkeepsie, New York) Eyewitness Account: "I was driving down the road when the car in front of me suddenly accelerated, then stopped accelerating but continued going straight as the road curved, ultimately crashing into a rail. I pulled over to help, and asked the driver what caused the crash. He told me that the Cha Cha Slide was playing on the radio and he was dancing along. When the lyrics came to "Left foot, Left stomp," he did just that, flooring the accelerator. Then it said "Freeze" and he froze, and then, "Everybody clap your hands," at which point he crashed.
