A video clip is going rounds on the internet showing it is filmed in what looks like a workshop shows a man in dark overalls telling the cameraman he knows the perfect way to escape from the cops.
In his hands is a piece of flexible metallic ducting pipe, often used in heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
Almost as soon as the video begins, the man runs enthusiastically across the room, holds the piping above his head and lets it cascade down over his body.
As if by magic, the ingenious escapee disappears from sight leaving what could be believed to be an insulated pipe sticking up out of the floor.
To complete the illusion he tilts his head forward so the pipe appears to be connected to the wall.
