Policewoman lifts a car – level 2

30-06-2015 07:00

An American website made an advert which went viral. The advert was a practical joke which was played on New Yorkers.

An actress took the role of a meter maid – a female officer which gives out parking tickets. She was doing her job when one taxi driver refused to move his car and was rude to her. No matter, she went in front of the car and lifted it. People could not believe their eyes!

How could this possibly be? The taxi was empty at the front and full of steel at the rear, so it was easy to lift from the front.

Difficult words: advert (a video which tells you to buy something), viral (very popular on the Internet), rear (back).

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