English term or phrase: roadkill stunt
"A snowboarder has the idea of getting hit by a car with a ramp on the front of it. He calls it his ***road kill stunt.***"

Un homme conduit une voiture, tandis que le surfeur reste immobile au milieu de la route, à attendre de se faire renverser. Je suppose qu'il se compare à un cerf qui se fait renverser parce qu'il est au milieu de la route.

Merci d'avance pour votre aide et bonne journée.
