Policewoman lifts a car – level 1

30-06-2015 07:00

An American website makes an advert. The website films the advert in New York. The video shows a meter maid.

She comes to a taxi driver. She tells him to move his car, but he does not. He is also rude to her. No matter, the policewoman knows what to do! She comes in front of the car and moves it up! People can’t believe their eyes!

How is this possible? Is the woman super-strong? Well, no she isn’t. The car is special. It is very light at the front and very heavy at the back.

Difficult words: advert (a video which tells you to buy something), meter maid (a policewoman who gives out parking tickets), rude (to say something bad to somebody).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about this advert?
