Picture the scene: there’s a massively destructive hurricane headed straight for your car. What do you do? If you’re anything like Instagrammer jalilsup, you put it in your lounge for safekeeping. No, really.

The Florida man refused to let Hurricane Matthew wreak havoc on his pristine BMW E30 M3, so drove it right through his front doors and parked it behind his sofa.

While the winds and rains raged outside, damaging the Daytona International Speedway and New Smyrna Speedway, among thousands of houses, trees, cars and more, Randy’s E30 was tucked up safely out of harm’s way.

The cute couple enjoyed an evening together before cuddling up for a sleepover, and the next morning the car was able to drive back out onto its ingenious owner’s front lawn.
