The video, “Lindsay Lohan & Amanda Bynes -- Drunk Drivers Ed!,” was posted to YouTube on Saturday, and has amassed over 250,000 hits. It was inspired by the continuous problems the two actresses have (literally) run into on the road.
“Hi, I’m Lindsay Lohan, and I’m Amanda Bynes –- this is our court-mandated driver’s safety video,” actresses playing the two actresses announce at the beginning of the sketch before they quickly begin to bicker.
“I am famouser than you,” Lohan then informs Bynes.
The video, made by Barely Political, a creative company producing online comedy sketches and song parodies, features the women discussing various road dangers, including "forgetting that you're driving," "policemen cars" and "Twitter."
“A lot of people ask why we would be qualified to talk about vehicular cancer….er, safety,” Bynes notes, and Lohan adds, “But we know firsthand everything that can go wrong behind the wheel of a car…We’ve been there.”
And then, of course, they proceed to get behind the wheel.
“All cars have a starter straw located in your dashboard,” Bynes says, referring to a car breathalyzer test.
“Sometimes my car won’t start when I blow into it,” Lohan points out, and Bynes agrees, asking a teenager standing nearby to help her out.
“I always have to get a child or an old to do it,” she comments.
In September, Lohan, 26, was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident after allegedly clipping a pedestrian in New York City, and in June, she was involved in a crash in California that sent her and her assistant to the hospital. She was also arrested on DUI charges in 2007 and 2010.
As for Bynes, the 26-year-old pled not guilty in court on Sept. 27 to two misdemeanor hit-and-run charges occurring in April and August, and was also arrested in April on suspicion of a DUI. Her license was suspended officially on Aug. 25, the L.A. Times reports.
“Sirens are another distraction of the road, they can be really hard to ignore,” says the actress playing Bynes as they prepare to get pulled over again. “I just drown them out by turning up my radio really loud.”
