This is the hilarious moment a car was caught on camera carrying the body of another car on its roof.


The bizarre scene was filmed on the dashcam of another car on a busy road in the city of Barnaul in south-central Russia's Altai Krai region.


The driver of the second car was so surprised by the sight of the old green Zhiguli car carrying the body of a white Zhiguli car on its roof rack that he followed when it turned off onto a side road.


And he continued to film it as it made its way along the narrow snow-lined road with the white car wobbling precariously with every bump and pothole.


The driver later shared the footage online on social media and video-sharing websites where it quickly proved popular and sparked a lively debate.


Netizen ‘Olga Papina’ said: "I would not be surprised if they were transporting a lorry this way. This is Barnaul after all."


‘Vadim Vladimirovich’ added: "Why spend money on a transportation service if they are capable of doing it on their own?!"


And ‘Serega Nazaroff’ added: "Yeah, but this car could fly off if they had to brake unexpectedly."


There is no information on whether police are investigating or even if officers are aware of the incident.


Barnaul, the administrative capital of Altai Krai, lies at the confluence of the Barnaulka River and the Ob River in the West Siberian Plain.


The ideal setting has made it home to modern humans, Neanderthals and Denisovans, for hundreds of thousands of years.
