Take a look at the video below:
The video gathered over 11 800 views in just a couple of hours and Mzansi was left stunned by the footage.
Some used the fact that it is a Simba chip truck to write hilarious puns.
Twitter user, @Zakroboka, commented:
"Mother Nature is also joining the truck driver strike."
Another tweep, @Iain_Lind, added:
"This is what happens when you fill all the bags with air."
Social media user, @66Killie, wrote:
"If they had put more chips and less air in the bags, the truck would have survived."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported on Tuesday, truck drivers embarked on a national strike despite a court interdict preventing them from doing so.
The truck drivers are protesting the large number of foreigners being employed while South Africans are sitting at home without jobs.
Truck drivers are angry and are waiting for Labour Minister Thulas Nxesi to say something "positive so they can stop their protest".
