A baby’s gender reveal party didn’t impress Queensland Police as officers search for a Logan driver behind a “dangerous” baby blue burnout.

Footage shows the red Holden Commodore VP doing the burnout, with blue smoke pouring from the car’s tyres.

The driver did the “gender reveal” burnout across two residential streets in Marsden in Logan, south of Brisbane, last weekend.

Police released footage in a bid to find the driver in their “investigation into the dangerous operation of a vehicle”.

A group of people gathered in a nearby park taking photos and video, a police spokesperson said.

“You can’t drive right now,” a person says in the clip. “Look what they’ve done to the road.”

Queensland Police say the stunt created “excessive noise” and the smoke blocked the view of the road.

“The vehicle conducted a ‘burnout’ … creating excessive noise and blue smoke which obstructed the visibility of other motorists on the public roadway,” a spokesperson said.

The incident occurred on Burrinjuck Street and then Timberlee Drive in Marsden in Logan about 11.20am last Saturday (September 11).

Queensland Police now ask anyone with information about the driver to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Creator of ‘Gender reveal’ parties doesn’t support them anymore

Gender reveal parties likely started in the US in 2008, sparking a wave of copycat events.

However Jenna Karvaunidis, the California mother widely credited with starting the trend, has since denounced it.

The increasingly extreme parties have caused numerous accidents, including deadly forest fires, a plane crash, and numerous explosions, including one that tragically killed a grandmother.
