Here's Why You Should Never Drive With Balloons Tied To Your Car

Rookie mistake.

This driver must be feeling pretty deflated.

On Tuesday, dozens of balloons tied to a car began to fly away as the vehicle's driver picked up speed on a freeway in Johannesburg.

Motorist Matthew Rorke was following the vehicle and captured the colorful -- and potentially dangerous -- sight on his own car's dashcam.

Rorke's video, which is now going viral, shows most of the helium-filled balloons soaring up into the sky.

A few balloons hit nearby cars, but the incident reportedly didn't cause any crashes and no one was injured, according to UPI.

When Rorke later passes the vehicle, only about 10 balloons are still tied to it.
