(Daily Mail) – With a record of saving lives and fighting the world’s evils, you’d have thought Superman would be able to read a map.
So luckily he had the guidance of motorists when he got lost on his way to San José, as this footage captures.
The hilarious video shows a man ‘flying’ besides a car driving in Costa Rica and knocking on the window to ask for directions.
Looking at the reflection in the vehicle’s wing mirror, it appears ‘Superman’ is partly perched inside the car as he reaches one hand forward.
He inches alongside the front passenger’s seat, making it look like he has flown to catch up with the speeding car.
To add a touch of authenticity, he then swoops up and down and to the side – while the vehicle’s passengers break out in fits of laughter.
After motioning for the passenger to wind down her window, ‘Superman’ asks frantically: ‘Which way to San José?’
‘Straight! Straight!’ the female passenger responds.
Thanking the woman, but paying no attention to her advice, ‘Superman’ then swoops off to the right.
The video, uploaded a week ago, has had nearly 300,000 hits.
It is not the first of its kind, with scores of similar stunts uploaded to the site over recent months.
In one clip, a driver moans that he is thirsty – a complaint heard by Superman, who niftily arrives alongside the window with a bottle of pop.
Others take the stunt a little more seriously, donning the entire red, blue and yellow outfit.
