Everything is an art (except twerking); it just takes the right kind of artist to create a masterpiece. YouTuber Tim Burke created his own masterpiece of sorts while cruising the streets of Manhattan at 3am in the morning.

55 consecutive green lights

Tim Burke catches 55 consecutive green lights while driving in Manhattan.

Burke challenged himself to catch as many green lights in a row as possible by maintaining the proper speeds at the proper times. Rather than speeding up only to slam on the brakes ten feet later, like a crazy taxi that he synced up with for a bit, Burke was able to time his motion just right so that he caught 55 consecutive green lights while driving downtown.

This taxi speed demon couldn’t quite figure it out.

I don’t think I’ve ever been so entertained while counting to 55. Check out the video footage of his late night adventure below.

    Timothy Moore hails from Dayton, Ohio, and tries to bring that Midwestern flavor to his writing. (But as it turns out, no one really likes the Midwestern flavor.) He has been covering the auto industry for years, with several national auto shows under his belt, but he’s been writing about lots of other things (like dragons and Mickey Mouse and cows drowning in milk) since he was just a tot. Outside of the land of cars, Timothy enjoys watching The Office and consuming excessive amounts of peanut butter and beer, and is on the board of an up-and-coming Dayton theatre company called The Playground. And when he’s not on stage (or three jars into a peanut butter binge), Timothy spends time with his mischievous dog, Greyson. See more articles by Timothy.
