Cars get loaded onto ships every single day of every single year. Sometimes, there are mishaps, but for the most part, it's a fairly simple and well-known process: Erect a ramp out of sturdy materials that goes from land to its new floating home, then drive the vehicle across that ramp and into safety.

But what happens when the ramp isn't quite so sturdy as you'd expect? As in, something like two flimsy wooden planks, spanning an entirely inappropriate distance from the dock to the massive boat? Perhaps a watery grave? Or maybe, just maybe, the gods are smiling, the driver is careful and the vehicle ends up floating away safe and sound forever more?

Watch the video above to see which eventuality this particular pickup truck driver in Brazil faces.
