Smoked out a Prius

I was coming home from Wally World today and low and behold, there was a Prius in the left lane running 50 mph in a 55 zone with all kinds of traffic behind it. I finally get up beside it and it's a typical yuppie driving, polo shirt, plaid shorts and teased hair. He's oblivious to what's going on around him while he's holding up traffic running exactly as fast as the car in the right lane beside him. Finally, the car in the right lane sped up a little. I told my g/f, "This is what we do to yuppies in Prius's." I nearly took his fender off when getting in front of him (I didn't use a signal just to be an a$$) turned the DP up on smoke and lugged it for a good 1/2 mile. He was throwing his hands up and shaking his head. It was great My g/f even got a chuckle out of it...

when driving in the smoke setting, could you see him behind you when you got on it?

It's a lot of smoke but not "cover both lanes" smoke....
