The mythical “they” say that sometimes it’s okay to laugh at yourself. But now and then, it’s even okay to laugh at someone else, ruthlessly. That someone is Jemon Haskins, the man locked inside a C6 Corvette. (Check out the hilarious video reenactment at the bottom of this article.)

Jemon Haskins will long be known as the man locked inside a C6 Corvette.

The 2007 Corvette coupe in question was sitting on the lot of a dealership in Lynchburg, Virginia, when Haskins, a TV news cameraman, stumbled upon it. Of course, the dealership was closed, so it was more than strange that Haskins decided to climb inside. And close the doors.

Unfortunately for Haskins, the doors do not unlock from the inside if you don’t have the key fob, according to Corvette Blogger. (A conflicting news report from Haskin’s own TV station claims it was because the battery was dead.)

Either way, the doors would not open from the inside. Like a Venus flytrap, any Corvette made after 2005 will allow suspicious people (or just bumbling fools like Haskins) without actual keys to actually go inside the car, but will not let them get out. Of course, there are two emergency levers that will allow you to escape should you become trapped, one under the driver’s seat and one in the rear compartment.

Unaware of this, Haskins began to panic, trying every way he could think of to escape. Eventually, he resorted to calling 911 when it started to get too hot inside the C6 Corvette. But it was a random passerby who eventually opened the door with ease to let an out-of-breath Haskins out.

Haskins called 911 when he realized that he could not escape.

The story itself is incredibly hilarious, but perhaps the best part is watching Haskins, an expert cameraman, reenact the entire scenario in the video below. Check it out:
