Viral videos show porta-potty’s magical journey down Route 66


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A portable toilet in Albuquerque fell victim to another kind of whiff this week after strong winds gave it a trip along Route 66.

A virtual video showed the porta-potty seemingly gliding through a busy intersection of the Mother Road as curious motorists looked on.

Severe gusts appeared to have dislodged the mobile toilet and forced it on a journey down a road that once connected Chicago to Los Angeles.

Several motorists and passengers caught footage of the traveling portable toilet. This motorist posted a video in which he chased the traveling toilet down the street, to the song “Dust in the Wind” by Kansas:

No injuries were reported, and it was unclear if anyone was inside, but let’s hope not.

Decommissioned as a U.S. highway in 1985, Route 66 still holds lore as a road where Americans ventured west. The 2,500-mile (4,023-kilometer) highway passed through eight states, connecting tourists with friendly diners in welcoming small towns. Nat King Cole famously sang ”(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66″ in a 1946 hit.
