Supernatural: 10 Most Cringeworthy Moments

The title says it all; a racist ghost truck, a truck that is a ghost that is also racist. Who on Earth signed off on that idea?

This one came from the early days of Supernatural, that being the first season. No one is debating that it must have been tough to develop a new monster of the week for so many episodes, but that's no excuse for this dreadfully cringe moment that came at the hands of the episode "Route 666".

In this outing, Dean is contacted by his first love (Cassie) and heads down with Sam in tow to investigate a string of racially motivated murders. It soon becomes apparent that the killer is a truck possessed by the spirit of a racist man seeking revenge. Not your average Supernatural villain, that's for sure.

If Steven King's Maximum Overdrive has taught us anything, it's that possessed vehicle stories often run out of gas pretty quick. That's certainly the case here, as it's so tricky to take the premise seriously, leading to a slew of awkwardness as the characters try to sell the severity of this racist phantom vehicle.
