The hundred-year-old peanut was involved in a NUTmobile crash that plunged him and his passengers, actor Wesley Snipes and comedian Matt Walsh, out of the vehicle into a ravine. The three passengers climbed onto an unstable branch that protruded from the cliff.
Mr. Peanut released the branch before it cracked and sacrificed himself to save both Snipes and Walsh. A subsequent explosion of the destroyed NUT mobile burned its Shelly remains.
The authorities do not suspect a bad game.
