Genius woman.


If she can afford a car, how could she not afford the parking fee?


[哈哈][哈哈][哈哈] Must try this when I get a chance!


Is this real or not? A car installed with remote control driving equipment? This can totally be called Chinese 007. [嘻嘻]


This TM is a “soft advertisement” [viral ad] for BYD’s remote controlled car.


Is this an advertisement for a self-driving car…? Very creative!


If it’s an advertisement then I have nothing to say. If it’s really to dodge paying the parking fee, you fucking driving this lousy car [困]


This looks more creative than [most] television commercials, even more attracting of eyeballs~~~ And its remote controlled!


Hahahahahaha just what did you do to the toll collector!


Haha, genius, the so-called “those above have their policies while those below have their countermeasures”, so even with the new driving tests [new driver’s license tests were recently put into effect], we still don’t need to fear, haha. At worst, just use this method [referring to driving via remote control], haha.


Seems suspiciously like a viral video [advertisement]. [嘻嘻]


Niubi! A genius. I love this kind of girl. [笑哈哈]


In addition to being a beautiful girl, she’s also exceptionally calm.


There is nothing that cannot be done, only what is not thought of. [哈哈][哈哈][哈哈]


The acting was so real, doesn’t look fake at all, and what more, the timing was very well done… Would this be considered illegal? Either way, it is hilarious! [哈哈] Why do we always derive our amusement on other people’s suffering…?


Isn’t that taking a joke too far! The toll collector couldn’t handle it! [哈哈] My stomach hurts from laughing, this girl is such a genius, I’m dying of laughter!


The toll collector should treat it like having watched a 4D film.


BYD has definitely gotten an enormous amount of exposure with this viral video. But it has also perfectly interprets the #BYD, only ghosts would drive# brand proposition, or at least I get it.
