A driver in Sydney spotted a man riding on top of a motorized suitcase. A video shows the man and his suitcase moving very slowly. Video of the unusual mode of transportation has gone viral.

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. There are few things in this world that unite almost all of us. Speeding to the airport in a sheer panic is one of them. Was that where a Sydney man was headed when a driver spotted him riding on top of a motorized suitcase? A video shows the man and his suitcase were moving slowly. It's a residential neighborhood, so he probably wasn't rushing to catch a flight. More likely he was just taking his suitcase cycle for a spin.
