THIS is the hilarious moment a young lad is spotted behind the wheel of a mini-car – as he tows his dad home on a trailer.
The mini-motorist was spotted in the centre of Bognor Regis, West Sussex, last Sunday by bemused passers-by.
A short video of the comical scene shows a blonde-haired boy sitting in a little red electric car and towing his dad behind him.
The dad is sitting on a chair on top of the trailer and can be see pushing the button on a pedestrian crossing before the pair cross a busy road.
The pair then wait on at the opposite pelican crossing, before driving onto a pavement to continue their comical journey home.
Witness Wayne Nuttall, 47, said: “I was having a pint in my social club and popped out to have a cigarette.
“I looked across the road and saw this little chap driving his dad home.
“The dad was on a trailer at the the back of the car and was being towed by his son.
“I thought it was a really comical moment.
“It was like something out of South Park.”
Wayne, a train ticket inspector, added: “I put the video on a local Facebook group and joked that the lad was probably taking his dad home from the pub.
“But I have since been told that the dad and son had been in the local carnival procession the previous day.
“It seems the car was based on a mobility scooter which he had converted for £250.
“In the video you can see that the dad has a remote control in his hand and his controlling it.”
The video was first posted on the Bognor Regis Forum page on Facebook.
Nikki Hall commented: ” The dads actually in Control of the cart and car saw him on way to carnival I think it’s a fab idea.”
