No, this isn’t a joke, but rather a real video that shows a 4-year-old from China driving a car through traffic. That’s not all, “the video-camera-wielding parents can be heard in the background, shouting encouragement and advice (in Chinese) from the back seat.” Video after the break.
At one point, the little speedster passes an SUV and her father says: “Concentrate! Be careful when passing other vehicles.” When the father finally says, “Jia Zheng, stop the car. Let daddy drive,” the girl pulls over, and hops out of the driver’s seat easily – she’s not wearing a seat belt.
