VIRAL VIDEO OF THE DAY - CRAZY DANCING TRUCK DRIVER
The driver - who apparently works all over Europe and the UK - handed the recording to a TV station and You Tube after filming his antics for friends. As he cranks up the volume on a folk song, the trucker starts thrashing around the cab, waving both hands with barely a glance at the road ahead. Then he unfastens his seat belt so he can gyrate around the driver's seat, before moving over to the passenger footwell to dance away from the control pedals and steering wheel. At one point, he even steers with his feet, showing off for the camera as he drives terrifying close to other trucks and cars. He says: "I was just bored, this wasn't anything special. We all do this - we sing, while we're driving." Copies of the tape are now being viewed by traffic poilce officers throughout Europe as they try to track down the driver. He claims the performance was shot by his brother as they drove from Holland to Belgium. Others believe the dance might have been recorded in France. Romanian police want to interview the trucker after he appeared on a local You've Been Framed-style television show. "He doesn't seem to be driving in Romania so what we can do is limited but we certainly want to talk to him," said a senior officer.
