Watch a Guy Flip His Car While Filming Himself Singing (He's Fine, Don't Worry)

What not to do: use your GPS mount to FaceTime, film yourself or watch Stranger Things while driving. What to also not do: Upload that footage to YouTube once you inevitably ignore the rule; no insurance company is likely to speak to you ever again.

But if you wanna go viral, don't worry about any of that. Just do it. Whatever. Be like the young, invincible Travis Carpenter, who, above, rolls his vehicle while midway through karaoke-ing the Casting Crowns tune "And Now My Lifesong." He emerges unscathed.

Here's Carpenter's explanation behind the video, which has received more than 416,000 views in a day:

"Disclaimer: no injuries occurred. I was traveling from Indianapolis to Whitewater, WI for a practice weekend with Machine Ultimate. I was going 70mph (speed limit) on I65 north. I travel the 3-4 hours by myself every time and use singing as a way to pass time, and critique it later. At this point I was practicing a nasal type voice on a Casting Crowns song when the crash happened. I was watching the road and saw nothing that caused me to worry. Simply hydroplaned in a heavy rain. My car slid sideways, and then was completely backwards by the time I slid off the road and went down a small hill. I hit a mile marker sign (230) on my way off the road. Here are two of the most amazing parts: I sustained NO injuries. Not even a scratch. And my car took NO mechanical damage and is completely driveable. Only body damage."

Well, when you put it that way...

Wait: no! Do not do this. Even if Travis Carpenter made it out fine. Instead, just tell us who sang "And Now My Lifesong" better:
