The bizarre footage shows a biker riding down a busy road with his pillion passenger holding a massive washing machine.
The unusual scene was filmed on Avenue Almirante Barroso – a main road in Belem, Brazil – on 22nd January.
A fellow road user filmed the biker forgoing a helmet as he rides his motorcycle down the middle of the road.
Unlike the biker, his pillion passenger is wearing a helmet, but this safety measure is offset by the fact that she is holding a giant washing machine in her arms.
She can be seen balancing the large device precariously on her right thigh as the bike travels at normal speed down the road.
Instagram user @pattyy_of asked: “Why didn’t they help and give them a lift in their car instead of simply filming like this?”
Media in Brazil reported that irregular transport of cargo on a motorcycle is considered an infraction in the Brazilian Traffic Code.
It can lead to the seizure of the motorcycle, a fine of BRL 191.54 (GBP 30), and seven points on the rider’s driving licence.
