When visiting Paris, there are many extraordinary sights people expect to see: the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomph, the Louvre...and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

There's also something no one expects that you might be lucky enough to get a glimpse of: some guy driving down the streets in a giant shoe.

The shoe-car appeared on the streets of Paris without any context or explanation, leaving many to wonder why a hipster-looking dude was driving a shoe down the street.

Yann Garin on Instagram: “10 jours de skate à Paris pour les 10 ans de la Janoski. 🎂 10 days of skateboarding in Paris for the Janoski 10 years anniversary.…”

It turns out the driving shoe was a publicity stunt engineered by Nike to advertise their new Zoom SB Stefan Janoski shoes that will be debuting this Spring!

It turns out the driver is none other than Janoski himself, the Californian pro-skater who partnered with Nike to design the new line of shoes.

Footage of the shoe driving through Paris is pretty unbelievable.

Twitter users thought the surreal shoe-car, which likely runs on electricity, was like something out of a video game.

Others struggled just to get their heads around the concept.

If there's any justice in this world, we'll all be able to buy shoe cars very soon—this is the future of transportation!

There aren't too many things that would make you go, "Man, I'd rather go to hell than be here right now. Hell has demons, torture, fire, and all the ill-prepared pizza they can shove down my throat." However, if you had to choose between these people's predicaments and hell, you'd probably be ready to have pizza for dinner.
