It looks weird, but if it works . . .

I was both surprised and amused to see this footage of a Chinese street-sweeping machine in operation. It looks a bit bizarre, but hey, if it works, why complain?

I had to laugh at one of the comments left on that clip's source page at Snotr:

It's a helicopter [from] the [Harry] Potter movies

Admittedly, modern street sweepers not only sweep, but vacuum up the dirt and debris..

..and speaking of that, I cannot recommend highly enough reading Bruiser: A Street Sweeper's Tales. On the long side, but side-splittingly hilarious. :D
