Video of the Week: Manager takes rotating brush for a ride

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Josh Hood, manager of Pitstop Carwash in Slidell, Louisiana, has a new prospective on rotating brushes.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — This week’s video, featured on WWLP’s (22News) website,, and provided by CNN, shows Josh Hood, manager of Pitstop Carwash in Slidell, Louisiana, get wrapped up in a hose and stuck on one of the wash’s rotating brushes.

“Josh says the hose actually wrapped around him, hog-tying him to the rotating brush,” reported Jeanne Moos in the video. “Round and round he went, the hose spooling out as he spun but never running out so at least he wasn’t squeezed as if by a python.”

Hood reported to RightThisMinute that “neither he nor the brush suffered serious consequences,” and that he only suffered a little road rash on his knees and laughed about the incident later.
