Can a hamster drive a large truck on the side of a mountain without falling off the side of the cliff? Volvo conducted a test to see if this was possible.
A makeshift hamster wheel is attached to the steering wheel of the truck. An individual sits in the driver’s seat and uses a carrot to guide the truck in the right direction.
The ride starts off choppy, as the truck weaves left and right. Rough roads and the glaring sun increases the difficulty level of the task. About halfway through the course, the truck veers dangerously close to the edge, knocking over a few large rocks into the body of water.
With the crew watching from a distance, the truck eventually makes it to the finish line unharmed from the ordeal.
