The creative lawbreakers did not make it too far however as midway through the video, a security personnel can be seen approaching the 'bus'. Reports remain unclear about whether the people were punished for the act or not.

Videos of the incident were widely shared on the internet with many lauding the lawbreakers for their creativity. The clip also became a meme in absolutely no time.
