This video shows a bus that appears to be floating along the M50.

Sent to us on Facebook by a passenger in a car beside the bus, the video has confused pretty much everyone we have shown it to so far.

The video at first look does actually appear to be a bus that is floating or hovering above the road.

The hovering bus

From there you can begin to decide what is actually happening.

First, take a look at the video and see what you make of it, secondly read our theories and take a vote on which you believe is the most likely.

Optical illusion

The water on the M50 is is spraying up along the road and under the wheel.

As a result the large amount of water is making it look like the wheel is off the ground and floating when in fact it is not.

This seems a likely scenario.

Bus is back heavy

At the start of the clip we get a glimpse of the back wheel which is planted firmly on the road.

One of our office members suggested that there was too much luggage at the back of the bus lifting the front wheels.

Seem plausible?

Hover buses

Hover buses have been introduced in Dublin and nobody told us about them.

It is 2018 after all, it's about time hover crafts became common place on our roads.
