A gigantic, slightly deflated moon balloon rolled and bounced its way over cars and motorbikes in Fuzhou, China, on Wednesday, after winds from an approaching typhoon set the celestial body loose.
Videos taken by amused and/or frightened motorists show the blob-like moon—which appears at least two lanes wide—subsuming entire cars and other vehicles as it blows over highways and intersections. In one moment that seems straight out of a low-budget monster movie, the floppy gray balloon rolls menacingly toward a motorbike driver who, seemingly frozen in fear, only moves out of the way at the last possible second.
Shanghaiist reports that the moon balloon was one of several inflated by Chinese cities for Mid-Autumn Festival, a holiday that prominently features the moon. Then Super Typhoon Meranti started approaching, and powerful winds unleashed one of them onto Fuzhou’s roads, resulting in the delightful and terrifying footage you see below.
