Meet The Viral Chicago O’Hare Airport Runway Cart Hero


– But first, who saw that
video of the runaway cart doing donuts at Chicago’s
O’Hare Airport, right? Do you know what I’m talking about? (audience clapping) Like, that was crazy, okay? So I’m obsessed with this because if you haven’t seen this video, prepare for a treat, okay? It all started when a case of water fell on the accelerator
and well, take a look. The cart was just doing
donuts on the runway, no one knows what to do, because no one wants to die. And then here it’s
almost about, watch this. Watch what’s about to happen.
– The airplane, here it goes. – Oh snap, oh! Wait, here it comes and
(imitates bomb exploding) Yep. (audience clapping) – [Man] That’s how you do it. – The guy videoing,
“That’s how you do it.” It’s the best. It’s like when you’re in a car and you talk to other people in the car, they can’t hear you. Like, it’s fine. Okay, that beverage cart
was gone, I love it. This video went instantly viral. It’s also the source of
countless online jokes. Here’s some of my favorites. This one says, “My
toddler after one cookie!” Yeah, I can attest that’s true. This one says, “My brain
after I send the guy I like “a vulnerable text and don’t
get an immediate response.” (audience laughing) That is so true. (audience clapping) The hero who stopped the cart though, is a ground crew member named Jorge, I wanna make sure I say this right. Manalang, who joins us today. First, how about a round
of applause for Jorge? He’s right here! I mean. (audience cheering) Okay, my first question, Jorge, is how much fun was it to
bash that thing into that, ’cause I woulda paid a
lot of money to do that. I mean, one, you’re kinda crazy, ’cause you could’ve gotten really hurt. But what were you thinking
when that all went down? – My past thinking is how do I prevent from stopping what’s going on? A little stop for a
second to think about it, what am I gonna do? Then I jumped into the side bay, I jumped and, it’s like,
almost it hit me on the back, but all my concentration
is to go to Pushback, I start it, pull the throttle real fast, and then I said myself, the last turn, you’re mine. – Yeah!
– That’s when I got it, right there. (audience clapping) – You are mine! – So I hit it right
there, I swap them away, make sure there’s nothing, no
debris right under the craft. And the aircraft just left
for 10 minutes of delay. – Well, so cool. We wanna thank you. We love the hero moments. – Thank you.
