Looks like it performed exactly as designed...

eta: looks like it wasn't attached correctly to the tow vehicle

Should've used a recovery strap and not a tow strap.

Probably a Harbor Freight tow strap.

NOT a recovery strap for snatching! lol

Looks like the shackle wasn't at least a rated 3/4" actually failed, and entered the rear window. All involved were VERY lucky.

I always cringe when people put themselves in the path of the straps if they were to break.

Chain would have left a bigger mark.

Allahu Strapbar or Allahu Snapbar or Allahu Slapbar? It's Ok, you don't need your eyes to set off your vest tomorrow.

All he had to do was throw a burka over the tow strap.

Since he was moving around I think the guy in the bed just ate a loop and not a shackle...

I have recovered all manner of vehicles using everything from recovery straps to do tie-outs. Using proper methods and some semblance of safety, I've never had a break much less an injury occur.

That shit was hilarious.

That's a good spot to sit.

I like the way the dipshit high-centered the truck. If he had angled, he would not have gotten stuck. But then the she goats would not be as impressed.

50-75 years from now the oil will be gone and they will be driving camels again.

And so it goes in Inshallahstan.

  Yes, even tying a t shirt on both ends really cuts down on the energy they can release when they break.
