Was driving down the road when the car seddenly accelerates. I could feel the petal drop out from under my foot. I pressed the brakes and the car spead up when I took my foot off the break. I tried hitting cancel on the cruise control (even though I never set it or mess with it ever) and it would still accelerate when I took my foot off the break. It finally went back to normal after pumping the breaks.
