- A video showing a surprise car wash has gone viral via social media
- Motorists were caught on camera taking advantage of a burst pipe in a public road and used it to wash their vehicles
- The footage had a polarising effect as many found the video hilarious, but others were infuriated by the water wastage
An entertaining video is doing the rounds on social media which shows South Africans making the most of a bad situation.
Motorists noticed that a water pipe had burst and that the municipality hadn't initiated the repair work.
Water gushed continuously from the pipe and into the street. Rather than allowing the water to go to waste, innovative motorists opted to drive past slowly and created their own free car wash.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the incident was captured through the cctv cameras in the area and security staff found the whole situation hilarious.
South Africa Live shared the video via Facebook and it had quite a polarising effect.
While many viewers were amused by the situation, others were enraged that the water was being wasted without a repair worker in sight.
Mulutula Franklin Shadrach commented, "My people are wonderful, south Africa my country."
Alex Smith said, "Always at the expense of others they always taking advantages of situation. What a mindset."
Siya Sinyekemba stated, "But motorists we need to share such vital information on time especially the location."
Boipelo Marima added, "That water was definitely put to good use."
Marie Meyers said, "This is not funny. Everyone is laughing nothing is being done and somewhere in our dear country animals are dying from thirst."
