- Trickster, from Japan, uploaded clip of toy Bullet train going off incomplete track
- Carriage slides along wooden floor before bumping off wall at the perfect angle
- Video, which was titled ‘Because rails are not enough’, has 4.1m views on Twitter
To go off the rails is to go into a state of chaos, dysfunction or disorder.
But that’s not the case for this toy Bullet train set, because someone in Japan has lined it up so the carriage comes completely off the rails before managing to find its way back to the track after bouncing off a wall.
The showboater @godi3, who uploaded the video to Twitter with the title ‘Because rails are not enough’, set the toy at a perfect angle to perform the trick.
Freewheelin’! The train comes off the tracks at the perfect angle so that when it bounces off the wall it goes back on the rails on the other side
In the clip, the train makes its way around the track, going underneath a mini green bridge before coming to the end of the tracks.
The carriage comes off the rails with enough momentum that it slides along the wooden floor all the way to the wall.
As it bumps off the skirting board it is redirected toward the other set of tracks and it somehow reattaches to them in an unlikely stunt.
As the video begins the train makes its way along the track, going under a mini green bridge before coming to the end of the rails
It glides along the smooth wooden floor and hits the skirting board which redirects the path of the carriage towards the tracks on the other side
Success! The carriage perfectly slips back onto its course and makes its way around the train track once more
It is unclear whether the unlikely trick was a one-off or if it was the result of hundreds of attempts.
The video has 4.1 million views, despite only being uploaded on December 27.
In the background a young boy can be heard chuckling once the trick is pulled off to perfection.
