A DRIVER has had his car completely covered in cling film by his ‘crazy girlfriend’ – but motorists warn it could ‘destroy the car’.
A passer-by posted a clip on social media of the moment he came across the boxed engine.
It appeared to be completely wrapped in cling film – even the roof and wing mirrors were covered.
The bystander just said, “Crazy girlfriend.”
It is not known if the cling wrap prank was actually the result of a dispute between a couple.
The footage found its way to Instagram, where the person who shared it said: “This is a bit of a mess — she actually wrecks her car.”
Some motorists have criticized the bizarre prank, warning it could seriously damage the engine.
One said: “Couldn’t this get super hot from the heat of the car and just melt into the paint?”
Another said: “Doesn’t that remove the color? I heard it does once.”
But others have jumped to the defense of the cling film prankster — whoever they are.
One said: “She protected the car – and he can just cut it open and pull it off in three seconds.”
Another said: “That makes sense. No harm done.”
Wrapping a car tightly in cling film allows dirt and grime to get into the paintwork.
It can also leave scratches if the cling film shrinks in the sun, even if it doesn’t melt.
Motorists were abandoned after a van parked on the pavement was corralled by scaffolders.
