Like, where he lives.

The only problem according to the Sewell, New Jersey, resident, is Bachman has no memory of how he got into an UberXL, the ride-sharing app's priciest travel option. Bachmann countered that he didn't want to just be left on the side of the road.

"When I woke up in the passenger seat of some random older foreign man's vehicle I had so many questions", he said.

"Afterwards I had it fully sink in", Bachman told the news site.

Obviously, this accidental life choice has made Kenneth quite the hero of the drunken regrets world, and speaking on the matter he said simply, "I was just like... that's insane!".

Bachman told NJ.com that he accidentally ordered an UberXL - a more expensive option to the typical UberX auto - and that he stayed in the van after he woke "because what am I, just going to get dropped off on the side of the road?" If there hadn't been surge pricing in effect, his ride would've been just half, $819.14. Couldn't he just get out of the auto once he realized what was happening?

The Uber driver didn't have money for tolls, Bachman says, and was fined at every tollbooth. A drunk man's Uber trip ended up costing him $1,600.

The PR machinery in order to create a hype around the release of the teaser, has put out stills from Kaala in the public domain. Wunderbar films Online video channel is going to release the Kaala teaser in association with their digital partner Divo.

Bachman got back to New Jersey safe and sound. The trip cost $1,635.93, and he even gave the driver toll money for the trip back, and rated him five stars.

Bachman challenged the charge after his ride, saying he never put in his home address for the Uber.

Bachman said, "I was just shocked". "He was on my phone, without me allowing it".

A drunk man in the U.S. types in the wrong destination and takes an Uber ride of epic proportions - with a fare to match.

"I tried arguing the charge, and I actually got on the phone with Uber", he said, adding that the ride hailing company "advised I pay it".

NJ.com reported Wednesday that Kenny Bachman thought he was taking an Uber to where he was staying, near the West Virginia University campus.
