Cash Cab Kills a Man

This game show is so fucking hardcore that it’s actually killed a man. Let’s see you do the same Wheel of Fortune!

Ok well, the person who died wasn’t actually a contestant, and the Cash Cab in question isn’t exactly the United States version of the show, but the Vancouver, British Columbia edition. Still, a gameshow prop that has actually killed someone is pretty metal…am I right?

Turns out that the producer who was returning the cab to its garage after a day of shooting, struck and subsequently killed a 61 year old pedestrian who was crossing the street sometime after midnight. It sucks the guy died and all, but seriously as a Canadian, can you not think of a better way of cementing yourself in the history books by punctuating your life’s end with a “Cash Cab ran my ass over”?
