Hyderabad: Imagine being driven around in an Uber cab by Batman! That too, not in a regular cab, but a classy Lamborghini styled up on the lines of the Batmobile.

A few Uber customers in California had this unique experience as part of a prank played popular prankster Josh Paler Lin. Though the actual incident was some time in March 2016, the video is once again making the rounds on social media, after the Facebook page of 9GAG posted it on Wednesday.

The video, which has clocked over 2.1 million views and nearly 40,000 likes in about 17 hours, has Lin in the garb of Batman giving Uber rides to lucky customers.

Lin tells viewers that on the fake Uber profile created for him for the prank, he is Ming, driving a Toyota Prius.

The first customer, a young woman, is stumped as he pulls up, and says “I’m your Uber driver,” and that too, in true Batman tone.

“Are you serious?” she asks, before saying “Is this for real?”. She is yet to come to terms with the strange driver, and says she had asked for a Prius. “This is my Prius,” replies ‘Batman’.

The fun continues. And all the customers are baffled as their Uber drive pulls up, with Batman at the wheel.

For some, it was a first in a Lamborghini, and many kept clicking videos and selfies with the unique driver. They have questions too, like this man who asks whether the car had a gun installed. Punched with witty responses and questions from Batman, the video is one mood lifting view. And the comments, especially from India, are hilarious.

“That moment when Justice League flopped and you have no work to do so you become an Uber driver. Poor Batsy!” wrote one, while another wrote: “These guys are getting pranked with a Lamborghini and meanwhile, I can’t get my Uber drivers stop cancelling the trips.”

Here is the video for that enjoyable Batman-driven Uber trip:
