Cars are supposed to protect the driver in the case of a lightning/voltage strike. Apparently it's not the rubber tires that insulate the vehicle, but that the shell is attached in a way to keep the threat away from (most) of the cabin.
But what happens when a TV show puts it to the test—with one of their very own inside the car?
Hint: the funny part is when the host dies.
