At the end of Nicholas Winding Refn’s 2011 film Drive, Ryan Gosling’s character, the aptly named Driver, drives off into Los Angeles traffic. A new satirical sequel explains what happens next—he picks up a few passengers as an Uber driver, which is the only logical ending to the saga.
In YouTube user Joey Thompson‘s fake sequel, Drive 2: The Uber Years, Gosling’s character has given up his side gig of working as a getaway man on heists and has picked up a more legal side hustle, which is driving a car for Uber and striving for a high rating. “If I could give him more than five stars, I would,” intones the disembodied voice of a very satisfied customer in the trailer.
He still wears his driving gloves, though, because while he is not running from the law, he is driving really really quickly to make sure a girls’ night out party doesn’t throw up in his car — which is equally stressful.
