The People Behind This Insane Feat Deserve Big Points For Creativity
May 30, 2015
Ferries such as this one transport goods, people and all sorts of other cargo up and down remote parts of the Amazon that are not accessible by road. Remote ports are often poorly maintained, so normal loading was probably just not possible in this scenario. Once you get past the shock of how the truck made it across the planks, stop to think of how it probably took a 237-point turn to even position itself properly on such a narrow dock.
If there was an award for "success in insanely impossible endeavors," then the driver in this video would surely sweep the judges panel for a unanimous win. I'm not sure about you, but I watched this video three times over, and each time I thought that the pickup was definitely going in the water. Although there are very few details at this time, comments left on YouTube and Reddit suggest this most likely occurred somewhere along the Amazon river in Brazil, since the people in the background can be heard speaking Brazilian Portuguese.
