Fact Check:

A mysterious video in heavy circulation purports to show Two Cars Levitated into Air while on Middle of Busy Road in China. The viral video, allegedly shot in a small town of China, shows two cars driving on road before they fly into air suddenly. The puzzling footage of flying cars looked real because a third car coming from behind comes to a halt. However, as explained below, the claim that the two cars levitated into air is not true – the video is not real.

Once the video went viral, some viewers gave weird explanations like the two cars were flying in air due to loss of severe gravity in the region. The sudden loss of gravitational force is due to a natural disaster that happened in Taiwan, it is said. Due to rise in earthquakes, such mysterious incidents will increase in near future, they added. The video gained popularity because earlier a mysterious real video from China showed an accident with cars levitating.

Have the Two Cars Levitated Really?

The video appeared on YouTube channel Eastwood Westwood on 31st Jan. 2018 with the tile “New:Cars levitate is China!Shocking!“. As of this writing, the channel contains only this one video upload and does not carry any other information. The 9 seconds footage does not show what happened later to the cars floating in air. Notably, the video is shot from a long distance, as if the person already knew something is going to happen there. If any such mysterious incident really happened in a broad day light on road, it would have easily got into news. The person who shot the video would love to share the details of the incident.

Apart from the fact that there are no media reports of the said incident to have taken place in China, there are certain flaws that question the authenticity of the video. If you observe closely, just before the second car appears to take off into air, the zebra crossing marks on right side of road tend to disappear. Once the cars appear flying in air, the tires look quite thin. Moreover, you can see light shadows of the two cars along the road, but there are no shadows of them as they fly high into air. These are all hints of possible editing involved in the video. According to a related report on Chinese Shangai Daily website shine.cn, officials investigated into the matter of ‘flying cars’ once the video became popular. They revealed no such incident took place at the scene, and Police said the video is fake.

Therefore, the claim from the video that the two Cars Levitated into Air while on middle of busy road is a hoax. Most probably, a video from the street was shot and then animation was added to make it look as if the two Cars Levitated into Air suddenly.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
