A hilarious video has emerged of a speedy getaway gone wrong, showing the moment three Saudi men toppled off the back of a truck when its acceleration took them by surprise.

Five passengers, wearing what appears to be the Saudi Arabian traditional white robe, the thobe, and patterned headscarf, the kaffiyeh, had been standing casually on the back of a white pickup truck on a dusty road, thought to be in Yemen.

But when the vehicle jolted into life and began to speed up the road, a toppling trio were sent flying off their precarious perch and onto the road.

In the short clip the three men are seen falling from the truck with their arms flailing.

One man’s kaffiyeh even comes loose from the jolt of the vehicle, and whimsically floats through the air to follow him on his path off the end of the platform.

Bemused passersby watched the slapstick comedy scene unfold in front of them as the driver appeared not to slow down – perhaps unaware of the fact that three passengers had been flung off the truck.

The two other passengers in the back of the pickup truck had the sense to hold on to the driver’s cab as the vehicle began to move, so were able to stay on board.

But one of them did not seem to like his unstable position and quickly crouched down to brace himself more readily against the motion of the vehicle.

Simultaneously, the unlucky trio were propelled backwards off the truck.

Haykal Bafana, from Yemen, posted the hilarious video[2] on social media earlier today for the enjoyment of his followers and other Twitter users.

Waheeda Peace said: ‘Sorry, couldn’t help laughing. Hope nobody got injured.’

It does not appear that anyone was seriously harmed in the video.
