This elderly man gives 'piggyback rides' a new meaning
Some people take the train to work, or drive a very nice hybrid or even bicycle, but Jiang Chengyou rides a giant pig nicknamed "hogzilla." The 68-year-old pig farmer in Chongqing, China has become somewhat of a town celebrity after riding the massive hog that weighs over 250 kilograms and stands nearly 90 centimeters tall.
The man started using the pig as his source of transportation when he came down with bronchitis that rendered him too sick to walk. The locals have taken a liking to the pork-rider, and often stop the duo during their commute for pictures.
Jiang Chengyou said of his means of transportation, "Riding my pig saves me a lot of energy and is also quite fun."
We couldn't agree more--it definitely looks fun!
