This Uber driver needs a great steering wheel that won't fly off when she's driving

Here is a good idea that we stand by: When buying a car, make sure it has a great steering wheel that doesn’t fly off when you’re driving. That would’ve been good advice for the below Uber driver, who, as documented by one unlucky passenger, began struggling with a loose steering wheel while in traffic. Clearly, whoever designed the vehicle had no good car ideas.


This, of course, casts a new light on the breakout sketch from Tim Robinson’s I Think You Should Leave, during which a particularly eccentric focus group volunteer demands a steering wheel that won’t “whiff out the window” while he’s driving. We laughed at the time, but maybe he has a point—maybe cars should be stinking inside. Let’s at least be grateful that the car wasn’t too small, lest she and the passenger be toast.

Now, because this entire article was more or less a reason to quote the sketch, why not read our very own definitive ranking of the show’s sketches?
