While out on the roads, there are plenty of hazards that could hold you up and cause you to arrive late to wherever you’re heading, but we bet ducks have never crossed your mind as one of them.
Turns out they very much could be, as a viral clip showing hundreds of ducks surrounding a car has amazed the internet.
The video was posted on Reddit’s r/Damnthatsinteresting sub with the caption, “Hundreds of ducks surrounding one particular car”. It has 65,500 upvotes from users who couldn’t believe their eyes.
In the clip taken from inside another vehicle at the scene, a flock of hundreds of ducks could be seen circling a white people carrier.
The birds were moving in a circular anti-clockwise direction and left the car unable to move at all. Meanwhile, other cars waited behind it as the huge flock blocked the road in both directions.
