Man on Pizza Run Drives Off in Stranger’s Car, Realises After a While: “That’s Not My Dog or My Car”

  • Vincent Zepeda accidentally got into and drove off in a car he mistook for his own on a snowy day
  • It was only when he noticed an unfamiliar dog in the back seat, eyeing a pizza, that he realised he was in the wrong vehicle
  • The 53-year-old recorded the incident, showing him parking the mistaken car next to his actual red Honda CR-V, and shared the video

Accidentally getting into the wrong car can be quite a mix-up, and for Vincent Zepeda, a 53-year-old from Montana, it was an oversight that took a bit to dawn on him.

Embarrassing mix-up

It wasn't until he spotted a strange dog lounging and drooling over a pizza in the backseat that he recognised the error.

In a nearly minute-long clip shared by abc7la that Zepeda took from inside the wrong car, he points to a red Honda CR-V, saying:

"This is my car."

Zepeda then parked the mistaken car next to his own.

He continued to explain.

"This is why you should not leave a key fob in your car because I got in with my pizza... and got the (expletive) scared out of me by this dog. That's not my dog or my car."

See the video below:

A white dog is seen in the video lying down on the back seat and gazing at the pizza.

In an interview with USA Today, Zepeda said he was caught in a mix of freezing rain and snow.

He dashed to the car, using a pizza box to shield himself from the wet weather, likely leading to the CR-V mix-up.

"As I was backing out, turning and blinking toward my ex-wife's apartment, I had a sensation that there's something in the back," Zepeda said.

Both Honda CR-Vs looked identical

Both vehicles in the clip look identical, with the only difference being that one has a cargo carrier on its roof.

Zepeda said he did not notice the cargo box initially because he looked down when he got in the car.

Before the video ends, Zepeda is heard laughing with a friend and walking away.

"I have those moments," he said.

Zepeda said he taped the incident mostly for his six children to teach them not to leave their key fobs in their vehicles.

Friends laugh at schoolboy after mistakenly showing up in civvies

Briefly News recently reported that a Mzansi schoolboy showed up to school in casual clothes on a day requiring uniforms. His friends, who were amused by his civvies day mix-up, filmed his awkward moment in a now-viral TikTok video.

South Africans found the situation relatable and shared funny comments about similar experiences of wearing civvies on the wrong day.
