A bizarre video emerged this week showing cars on a busy Chinese street bouncing, rolling, and levitating via some mysterious, unseen force. Chinese officials quickly explained away the video claiming the cars were moved by a cable that had become entangled in the rotating broom of a passing street sweeper. Others however, have found no evidence of a cable in the video and note that despite tossing two large vans and an automobile about, the street sweepers moves not one inch.
In the video below, which was recorded in the city of Xingtai, you will see two approaching vans suddenly thrown violently into the air before slamming back down to the road again.
According to Chinese officials, a cable had been lain across the road for an upcoming repair job. The passing street sweeper pulled the cable tight, lifting the cars as they drove over it.
