Man holds umbrella while driving convertible Mercedes in the rain

Updated: 

This is the utterly bizarre moment a motorist was caught using an umbrella to shield himself from the rain while driving his convertible with the top down.

The footage, which was recorded in Guangyuan in the Sichuan Province, China, on May 5 by a passing motorist, shows the driver holding the umbrella with one hand while appearing to pick his nose with the other.


The passing motorists who filmed the strange scene were obviously surprised to see the driver of the red Mercedes E-Class cabriolet, and it's unclear why he didn't just pull over to put the roof back in place.

Perhaps the roof was broken, or the whole video was some sort of hoax. Regardless, we hate to think what sort of damage the rain might be doing to the car's interior.
