Eddie Griffin Crashes Ferrari He Had No Business Driving In The First Place
on 3/27/2007 (0)
Irwindale, California Comedian Eddie Griffin crashed a rare Ferrari Enzo worth $1.5 million into a concrete barrier while practicing at a racetrack Monday, destroying the car but escaping uninjured. This brings to light the obvious question of how a man who's career peaked with a supporting cast role on ‘Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo' could be allowed to drive such an extravagant vehicle.
|Wow, that's funny. Someone, give this man a Ferrari!|
The Enzo, valued at around $1.5 million or over eight times the worldwide profits from ‘Undercover Brother', was owned by Daniel Sadek , executive producer of Griffin's latest craptacular "Redline". The car was damaged beyond repair and Sadek reportedly had "mixed feelings" about Griffin walking away from the wreck unscathed.
The "comedian" was practicing for a charity race to promote his upcoming flop, I mean film, "Redline," when he pulled a Kelsey Grammer and skidded out of control, ricocheting off a cement barrier, which caused heavy damage to the car's front end.
"Huge movie stars, wealthy oil tycoons, corporate big wigs, and wealthy hotel heiresses are the types of people that should be driving such a beautiful car," said Ferrari spokesman Toscan Bennett. "How the poor-man's Eddie Murphy ended up behind the wheel of one is beyond my comprehension, but the tragic results were to be expected."
"Undercover Brother's good at karate and all the rest of that, but the brother can't drive," said Griffin in what we assume was a vain attempt to bring some humor into a horrible situation while simultaneously plugging a movie no one ever wanted to see.
Only 400 Ferrari Enzos were ever produced, all between 2002 and 2004. Ferrari owners have been warned by authorities to keep their vehicles as far away from Eddie Griffin as possible less face the same demise.isplay:0" style="display:no
