- Some people will do the most to get where they want to go and a viral video proves it
- The clip shows a man hitching a ride on the back of a van, however, not just any van, a 'money truck'
- South Africans could not believe their eyes and they reacted to the "hilarious" footage online
In South Africa, not everyone can afford their own cars, and sadly, there are those who can't even pay taxi or bus fare.
This often results in people getting creative to get from point A to B. In Mzansi, we've seen people using trolleys and wheelchairs on high ways and now another man found a way to travel.
The guy was filmed holding onto the back of a cash van. The video was shared on Facebook on Wednesday by social media user Boost Justice Mokoena.
The clip quickly gathered over 11 000 views and it left South Africans both stunned and amused.
Victor Motsepe commented:
"Haibo. Is this guy for real? That looks like like a 'money truck'. If it is, this guy is brave. How long was he behind the vehicle?"
Dey C'tted Maziah added:
"Yey wena!!! Msatha."

Masiya Mokoena commented:
"This is hilarious."
Take a look at the video below:
Meanwhile, another bizarre video caught Mzansi's attention. Earlier this week, Briefly.co.za reported video of a lady afraid to cross the road is making its rounds on social media. The lady, in a baby pink dress, can be seen being pulled by the arm to cross the road by a male counterpart.
She pulls her body weight back to release his grip and eventually hits the ground in a dramatic fall. The man, who is halfway across the road, returns to her in an attempt to convince her to cross the road. She refuses once again and he picks her up and carries her across whilst she protests and tries to fight her way out of his grip.
The video was posted to Twitter by @BhekaniMlambo and has gained 7 400 views and over 100 likes since it was uploaded. The video has gained varying viewpoints from social media users as some find it funny whilst others believe it is all an act.
