A HILARIOUS video shows the moment three friends were spotted waiting for temporary road traffic lights to turn green – while walking along the pavement.
A bemused motorist captured the footage of the trio patiently waiting for the lights to change in Shirebrook, Derbyshire two weeks ago.
The bizarre clip shows three young men, who appear to be in their late teens, standing on the pavement next to a road which has road works on it.
The lads are lined up shoulder to shoulder to the left of a temporary traffic light which is holding a line of cars at a stand still to their right.
The boys can be seen waiting patiently as they eagerly await their cue to proceed from the lights.
As soon as the lights switch to amber the lads snap into action and continue on their way.
Motorist Scott Maxwell shared the video to Facebook later that day, writing: “Lads whoever you are, this turned my day from s**t to the best drive home ever.”
The post has now collected over 788,000 views with more than 6,200 likes and 2,000 comments from users who found the video hilarious.

And Christine Hodge added: “No amber gambler’s here lol. I love this, it made my day.”
