Man driving two bumper cars at once – Click above to watch video after the jump

Hauling equipment can be pricey business, especially with the cost of gas rising by the day. So what do you do if that equipment you need to get from point A to point B is also very mobile, fun to drive and... topless? You'd be crazy not to drive it, right?

Well, maybe not. A Chinese man going by the name of "Mr Zhang" was caught on surveillance camera driving a pair of bumper cars on a busy city road in the Taizhou, Zhejiang Province of China. And if you're thinking that the bumper cars were somehow daisy-chained together, think again. Mr Zhang can clearly be seen straddling the two cars with one foot on each gas pedal and one hand on each wheel. Remarkable – some people can't even walk and chew gum at the same time.

The police eventually caught up to the bumper bandit, but since there were no specific laws saying that you couldn't ride two bumper cars simultaneously, the gentleman was reportedly let off with a warning. Hit the jump to watch in awe as the fabulous Mr. Zhang takes center stage with his bumper car balancing act. Hat tip to Dave!

      @bip-d-bo
      Thats vaguely offensive but i agree

      My opinion: I thought they only had bicycles in japan and that the only cars they had was a lamborghini beaten to death and a range rover powered by donkeys. Atleast they have bumper cars now, thats kinda cool. Anyways sorry for the xenophobic comments but im canadian so take your best shot at me :P

        Hey flex,
        I actually ment china, I made a mistake, have been reading too much Cnn these days. My comment was a bit too much and i take back my words. I have many chinese friends and i respect them a lot. I am quite sorry if i offended you. What really surprised me in this video is the lack of a citation that this should have deserved :P

        The Lamborghini and Range Rover incident was in China...
        And so is this. It even says Chinese man in the title.

        As a Chinese Canadian I find your comment pretty offensive. First because as a citizen of a country that embraces multiculturalism your comment is quite ignorant. Second, confusing Japan with China is akin to mixing up Germany and .... say France. The difference is that Japan has still yet to apologize for or admit any wrongdoing during the Second World War in which they raped and pillaged half of China.

        You're a disgrace to all Canadians.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Well, you're Canadian. I guess that's punishment enough.

      He should get together with the French Mario Kart guy and have a race.

      New law: You can only drive ONE bumper car at a time.

      The circus music alone made that video awesome.
      • 3 Years Ago
      So unfair. This guy gets to have two bumper cars on the road, but I can't have even one.
      This artcile proves once again that China is now the premiere bumper car market in the world.
