This is a cellphone video shot by 18-year-old Bobbie Jo Johnson in a Wal Mart parking lot on the outskirts of Cornhusk, Iowa. She and her boyfriend, Billy Bob Arnold, were necking in the back seat of his parents’ 1963 Buick LeSabre when they felt the car shake and heard a loud noise. They looked out the fogged rear window to see a huge, otherworldly machine reeking havoc as it trampled everything in its path. Billy Bob immediately started the car and high-tailed it out of there as Bobbie Jo leaned out the window and caught all of the action on her cellphone. You can see the monstrous machine destroying a ’57 Chevy Bel Air owned by Earl and Marge Henderson.
Little did they know at the time that this was the first in an invading wave of deadly Traumadors that had landed in America’s heartland, intent on inflicting widespread trauma.
shoot, I forgot to add camera shake…
