I'm Pretty Sure This Beetle Is Briefly A Boat Here

Okay, late-night pals, I need a judgement call here. About halfway through this, um, puddle, I think the Beetle is actually afloat, and the rear wheels are providing propulsion solely through water-wheel action as opposed to contact on ground. What do you think?


That Beetles can float in a pinch is well-known. I'm not totally sure of the water depth here, but the car's motion suggests that, at least for a few moments, this Brazilian Fusca's gone all boat on us.

Also, this looks like a blast.
