2 men riding in bakkie with plastic bags over them

In another story, Briefly News reported that two creative gents had social media users laughing out loud after they were captured on video covered in large plastic bags while riding in the back of a bakkie to try to escape the cold wind.

Although one can't be too sure of the safety of their method, there's no chance of these two catching the cold, LOL.

Mzansi netizens had a field day with the post as they responded with funny comments, poking fun at the men.
