As the car edges up the ramp, the driver appears to rev the engine to give it a little more power, but the front wheels on the 4WD catch the rubber mat and send it flying backwards on the slippery concrete surface.

Two mechanics standing on the mat suddenly find themselves sitting on their backsides on the floor, while a third employee manages to avoid an embarrassing fall,

The pair later stood up by themselves and are not believed to have been injured during the accident.

Social media users appeared to take quite some time before figuring out how exactly their fall happened.

More than 3,800 netizens have commented on the video since its publication on 30th May.
