  • - 90% of the people tend to just fully panic.

  • - A lot of crashes.

  • - There's a ton of concern.

  • I think I'm just as nervous as you.

  • (engine rumbling)

  • - I'm gonna drive that.

  • That's my truck.

  • What's up?

  • I'm Emily and I really like cars.

  • As I kid, I used to play with cars all the time,

  • in any shape and form,

  • whether that was a Barbie car, an RC car,

  • Hot Wheels, golf carts, go-carts,

  • driving my dad's car around in the yard, all of it.

  • And I think it pretty much goes without saying,

  • that the coolest thing you could ever drive

  • is a monster truck.

  • So when Monster Jam reached out to BuzzFeed to see

  • if anyone wanted to learn how to drive a monster truck,

  • I obviously kept very calm and cool and professional.

  • So my friend Zach was like, "Is anyone interested

  • "in doing a video on the Monster Jam?"

  • And then I was like, "Oh my god, I love Monster Jam."

  • And then my friend Megan was like, "Of course you do."

  • And then I followed up and I was like,

  • "Do you think they'd let me drive their trucks?"

  • And then Zach was like, "I actually think so, yeah."

  • And I was like, "Oh my god, yes."

  • (ding)

  • So since I've certainly never driven

  • a Monster Jam truck before,

  • the first step was to talk to some people who have.

  • (upbeat music)

  • So I'm about to drive one of these things.

  • - Yeah.

  • This is like, not a training truck.

  • So this thing's 100%, ready to rip.

  • Have you ever drove anything like, high performance?

  • - I drive a 2006 Scion TC.

  • - [Morgan] Yeah.

  • - And I think she's got 160 horsepower.

  • (Emily clicks tongue)

  • - Yeah, I was about to say,

  • that's probably about 12 of those.

  • So take about 12 of those motors.

  • - This thing has 1,500 horsepower.

  • It's 12,000 pounds.

  • - Great.

  • - So you're way in left field.

  • There's a ton of concern to throwing...

  • I don't even know how to explain your level,

  • into a professional level vehicle.

  • - What should I be worried about?

  • - 90% of the people tend to just fully panic,

  • and normally the panic mode is to hit the throttle

  • wide open, that's not a good idea.

  • - I can't imagine why.

  • - It's instant, there's no lag, it's instant.

  • When you hit the pedal, it's gone.

  • - Okay.

  • - So just to give you a little heads up.

  • (engines rumbling)

  • There's a lot of mistakes that are made.

  • And a lot of crashes, 'cause I can guarantee you,

  • you go to step in that truck,

  • your hands are gonna start trembling and shaking.

  • - When I pull onto the track, I have no plan.

  • - Right. - I'm just gonna go crazy,

  • I'm not stopping until the truck's stopping,

  • and I hope like heck, the truck's tore up, but I'm not.

  • - Right.

  • - Monday morning when you roll out of bed,

  • you're like, man, I felt like I just got in a car crash.

  • - 'Cause you did.

  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • - We kind of shouldn't be doing what we're doing

  • with this motor, but we're gonna make an exception.

  • Yeah, there's a gas and brake, and a steering wheel,

  • which all sounds normal,

  • but then there's ignition switch, start button,

  • multiple fans, water accumulators.

  • (Ryan thoughts draining out each other)

  • - You'll figure it out.

  • I can explain it to you all day,

  • how to drive a Monster Jam truck,

  • but until you do it, it's just like,

  • in one ear, out the other.

  • - Uh huh.

  • - I mean, you can't do anything worse than what we do.

  • - That's true.

  • (Morgan laughs)

  • And I do that today,

  • then I've done something terribly wrong.

  • - Yeah, we'll probably never have you back.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - I'm excited now.

  • I guess we're just gonna get the suit on.

  • And then we'll be driving.

  • All right.

  • - [Ryan] So you're gonna be in fully flame-resistant suit.

  • You're gonna have the same neck restraint systems

  • that we run in the trucks.

  • Same helmets that we run in the trucks.

  • Fire-resistant gloves, shoes.

  • - I'm ready.

  • I'm a pro.

  • - So you ask us questions all day,

  • so I'm gonna ask you, why do you wanna do this?

  • - My whole life, I remember seeing Monster Jam commercials,

  • and being like, I wanna go.

  • And my parents were like, meh.

  • (Emily sighs)

  • In 2018, my twin brother died,

  • and it was really terrible.

  • For a while,

  • I kind of thought my life was over.

  • And nothing really made sense or mattered anymore.

  • And I went home for a while to be with my family.

  • And when I came back I was all by myself,

  • in like, this new way.

  • And I didn't know what I was gonna do

  • or how my life was gonna be now.

  • When I got back, I went of Facebook, as you do

  • and I saw an ad for Monster Jam Triple Threat.

  • Something I always wanted to go to,

  • and never did as a kid.

  • Kind of, weirdly, resurfaced in my life

  • when I needed it the most.

  • And so I organized this huge group of my friends to go.

  • And it (beep) rocked.

  • (engine rumbling) (Emily screaming)

  • Going to Monster Jam was really the first thing that I did

  • after my brother died that really allowed me

  • to just have fun and kind of forgot about my life

  • for a second, and how sad I was.

  • But I didn't tell anyone at Monster Jam that.

  • I wanted them to think I was cool.

  • (bass music)

  • - [Morgan] You know, you could crash and roll over.

  • I'm hoping you keep it on all four wheels.

  • - She's in the truck,

  • I'm gonna get her the rest of the way strapped in,

  • and we're gonna go through her first start up process.

  • And then after that, I'm getting the heck out of here,

  • and we're gonna turn her loose on this huge track.

  • This is the start button,

  • and then this is the ignition button.

  • This thing is an absolute life saver.

  • Power on.

  • (fan running)

  • Fuel on.

  • Two hands, start button, and then ignition.

  • Two hands.

  • (engine starts) (upbeat music)

  • - What a pro, what a pro! - Nice job!

  • - [Ryan] How'd it feel?

  • - [Emily] That was (beep) insane. (laughs)

  • - [Ryan] That's exactly what I like to hear.

  • - [Emily] Oh my god.

  • - Let's get you outta that thing.

  • Little shaky. - Shaking a little bit.

  • - I'm not gonna lie, it was very impressive.

  • You picked up on everything, super fast.

  • The shifting, the starting technique, the rear steer.

  • Normally, there's always rookie mistakes

  • on each one of those.

  • - [Morgan] You could go the test field and start jumping.

  • Yeah, you picked it up quick.

  • - Heck yeah, that'd be sweet. - Good job.

  • - She picked up on it right away, I couldn't believe it.

  • We have drivers that weren't that good at the beginning,

  • now that are really good.

  • So she was awesome fast.

  • Very impressive.

  • - Well, thank you so much.

  • - Yeah, no, definitely, absolutely.

  • - This was like, the best day of my life.

  • - Yeah.

  • - So to some, they might just be big, dumb trucks.

  • To me, being able to drive one of these things that just,

  • brought me so much joy and happiness

  • when I was in the darkest moment of my life,

  • just really means

  • so much more.

  • I'm the queen of Monster Jam, baby.

  • And in life, in everyone's life,

  • there might be times when you feel like

  • you may never be able to have a single ounce of fun again,

  • and it's times like that, when we really need things

  • lie Monster Jam the most.

  • So I hope that you find your Monster Jam.

  • (upbeat music)

  • (rock music)

- 90% of the people tend to just fully panic.
