The video, tweeted by a user named Daniel on the microblogging website, shows a stream of traffic seemingly disappearing as it drives off the bridge.
"Yes, the traffic just disappears," confirmed Daniel while sharing the video online, where it has been viewed over 63,000 times.

While many called it a magic trick, others compared the bridge with the Bermuda Triangle, where several aircraft and ships were said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.

According to a tweet on the post, the video is shot from a terrace, which is creating an illusion of a bridge. “Its the roof of a building, the dirt underneath the wall creates the illusion (along with perspective) that it’s an overpass.”
