The popular YouTuber turned reality TV show Big Boss winner, Elvish Yadav, recently pranked his mother with a Rs 4.5 crore Mercedes Maybach GLS 600 luxury SUV. Elvish recently shared a video where he was seen activating the free driving mode of the GLS 600, which is also called the “bounce mode,” and making his mother believe that the car has broken down and there is something wrong with it. The video shows the reaction of his mother and other people on the road who noticed this unique bouncing feature of this expensive luxury SUV.
This video of Elvish pranking his mother has been shared on YouTube on his second channel named Elvish Yadav Vlogs. It starts off with the YouTuber showing the Polar white-colored finished Maybach GLS 600, which was lent to him by one of his friends who owns a car dealership. He then shows the exterior and interior of this ultra-expensive SUV and then asks his friend to film him while driving it. Soon after his friend starts recording the car, Elvish activates the free driving mode or the “bounce mode” of this SUV. In this mode, the Maybach GLS 600 bounces with the help of its air suspension.
Elvish Yadav pranks his mom
Following the introduction, Elvish then takes this SUV to show it to his mom. He first asks her to sit in the rear seat of the SUV, which offers a reclining and massaging seat. Elvish tells his mother that this SUV comes with the massage feature; however, he does not know how to activate it. After this, he sits in the driver’s seat and asks his mother to sit on the front passenger seat. He then acts as if he is trying to turn on the massage function on the front seats. But in reality, he turns on the free driving mode which makes the car bounce.
Immediately, his mother laughs and asks, “What is this? Please turn it off.” To this, Elvish replies that he does not know what is going on and blames his mother that she has done something to the car because of which it’s not driving properly. Soon after this, his mother refutes, and Elvish reveals that it is just a prank and it is a feature of this car. Soon after this, he takes his mother on a short ride in this SUV around his village.
Villagers’ reaction to the bouncing Maybach GLS 600
After starting the drive on the narrow roads of his village, Elvish once again activates the bounce mode on the GLS 600. After this, it can be noted that many people were looking at the vehicle. There were a lot of mixed reactions from the crowd. Some people were laughing and smiling after seeing the bouncing SUV. Meanwhile, some people were seen getting confused as if the car is okay or is it malfunctioning.
What is this free driving mode or “bounce mode”?
For those who may not be aware, Mercedes Benz launched the GLE and Maybach GLS 600 with this unique free driving mode to help the car come out of sand and mud during off-roading. This particular feature utilizes a 48-volt electrical system and Airmatic air suspension, which enables the car to bounce up and down and help it get out of the situations where it may get stuck during off-roading. However, not many people use this ultra-expensive SUV to go off-roading, so mostly people on the internet have been seen using this feature as amusement. There are a number of videos on the internet showing people driving in the city with this feature just to get eyeballs.
