Badass Saudi Woman Drives a Car, Ovaries Fail to Explode

This video— which has been viewed over a million times since being uploaded— was made by a Saudi filmmaker and an anonymous woman who wanted to give a middle finger to the kingdom's driving ban before a country wide driving protest, which is scheduled for the 26th of October. While the filmmaker shot the anonymous woman, she sent a series of taunty Tweets.

Again, no one's vagina started on fire.
