Overview

“I Towed Joey Graceffa’s Car” is a monologue video uploaded by Los Angeles comedian Nate Clark in response to YouTube celebrity vlogger Joey Graceffa’s ranting about getting his car towed for slightly blocking a neighbor’s driveway. In the response video, Clark reveals himself as the neighbor who called in the impound and offers a thorough and witty account from his point of view.

Background

On October 17th, 2013, Joey Graceffa uploaded a video titled “Stolen Car” to share a story about getting his car towed overnight and having to pay a $200 fine, while repeatedly claiming that he didn’t violate traffic laws. In addition, Graceffa speculated that the impound may have been a result of a neighbor overreacting to his car partially blocking the driveway.



Then on October 22nd, Los Angels comedian Nate Clark uploaded a YouTube video titled “I TOWED JOEY GRACEFFA’S CAR,” identifying himself as the neighbor who called in the report and offering a point-by-point rebuttal to Graceffa’s claims, asserting that his driveway was completely blocked in by the car, along with other witty retorts to the vlogger’s grievances.



In closing, the comedian goes on to mention that Graceffa had left his federal tax return on the passenger seat of his card, quipping that he still owes unpaid taxes despite his presumably significant earnings from YouTube. Within 48 hours of upload, Clark’s video accumulated more than 1.9 million views.
