Man builds a car with sticks
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a man had built a car using sticks.
In a video seen on the Instagram handle of BCR Worldwide, the young man mounted the car and kick-started it.
While it is not clear how long it took him to put the sticks together to make the car, some people have hailed the man for his efforts. Others, however, said they did not find the man's car to be good at all as it did not show creativity.
Nevertheless, the man rode the car in public to the admiration of many people who gathered to take a look at it.
