The excitable driver seemed more enthusiastic than nervous about driving with the insects in his vehicle.
For most people, the prospect of driving along a busy road with a large swarm of bees positioned just inches above their head would be the stuff of nightmares, but for one man in China recently, the prospect of such a scenario evoked feelings more of elation than that of fear and dread.
In a clip filmed on April 1st and distributed on social media, the man, who was driving along a rural road in eastern China's Anhui province at the time, gleefully laughed into the camera as he pointed out the huge mass of bees that had swarmed onto the roof of the inside of his vehicle.
The bees had reportedly entered the car the day before, but rather than having them removed, the man had chosen to drive anyway because he believed that having them there was good luck.
"Check them out! I'm going to be rich," he said.
It's certainly not unusual for bees to swarm at this time of the year as they search for a new site to build their hive with their queen, but driving with them inside the car is definitely ill-advised.
