Just a few days ago, the internet was surprised with hilarious footage showing a man in China driving an electric toy car on a busy road.

As caught on surveillance cameras, the man who was identified as Ye can be seen driving the electric toy car on the road along with other riders and drivers.

He was apparently needed to go to his office immediately for an overtime shift.
However, the problem began when he realized that he did not have much time to return home and drive his own car.
Ye then decided to borrow his granddaughter’s toy car and drove it all the way to his workplace.
As the man nearly made it to his workplace, the footage revealed that the automatic gate did not allow him to pass through. Instead, he had to drive on the pedestrian path next to the automatic gate.
What makes it even funnier is when Ye had to correct the position of the electric toy car after it got stuck on the road.

“At that time, I made the decision without thinking it through so it did not cross my mind the consequences of my behavior,” he said.
