Special delivery: Motorcycle, somehow, transports dozens of boxes

Special delivery: Motorcycle, somehow, transports dozens of boxes

We’re not quite sure how they managed to stack them, but this video from downtown Shanghai shows what appears to be a motorized tricycle piled high with dozens of parcels.

Surrounded by a cave of boxes and completely hidden from view, the driver somehow still manages to navigate the city streets.

Looking like a parade float, it's smooth sailing for most of the clip until the end when they barely miss an oncoming car at an intersection. Fortunately, it didn't end as badly as Faber College's homecoming parade.

Such creative use of transport is legendary throughout Asia.

Entire families and pets pile onto mopeds and dart through busy traffic, showing complete disregard for personal safety.

Although carrying family members on a moped is the norm in India...

Oh, India! Fantastic colours are everywhere Agra, Uttar Pradesh

...bringing a dog in a bag fixed to the side is less commonplace. This little guy seems to be pretty relaxed about his situation, though.

In Vietnam, mopeds appear to be able to carry just about anything.

This Indian guy mixes it up by picking up a motorcycle, balancing it on his head, climbing a ladder, and positioning it on the roof of a bus.
