Man Caught Escaping Lockdown by Dressing as a Bush

Share on Facebook

A quarantined man in the U.K. has spectacularly broken the ultimate lockdown rule of not leaving the house by dressing up, head-to-toe, as a bush, all in an attempt to avoid drawing too much attention to himself.

You know, because there’s nothing more normal than a walking, talking bush, right?

Thankfully for us, the rule-breakers antics were caught on video, and they make for some pretty hilarious viewing…


In a last-ditch effort to slow down the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus, countries and major cities all over the world have gone into full lockdown.

And now, nearly 800,000 people globally have been infected with the virus.

While medical researchers work tirelessly to find a vaccine, regular people have been urged to avoid any form of social interaction and contact as best they can.

Person-to-person contact is thought to be the main method of transmission for the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – Through sneezing and coughing, primarily.

And millions are now quarantining themselves at home for months at a time.

And have no option but to sit in their homes and think of ways to stay entertained.

It turns out that all the Netflix in the world isn’t even enough to keep us entertained for 2 weeks.

Dogs, we finally feel your pain.

Another beer? Why not!

But, while these people are sending themselves around the bend with boredom…

Others have simply had enough of quarantine, and have devised some rather creative ways to sneak out of the house.

The government has warned that those caught breaking their lockdown will be fined and, in some extreme cases, even arrested and sentenced to prison time.

So those who do want to break the rules by leaving their house for purposes other than shopping for food and medicine…

Have to do so extremely carefully.

Footage of a rather sneaky man leaving his house in a makeshift camouflaged costume has gone viral this week…

Because he was dressed, head-to-toe, as a bush.

We can’t make this stuff up. The man was filmed by his neighbor, Madeline Mai-Davies from Hertfordshire, England, who then posted the footage to Tik Tok, where it quickly went viral.

Nothing too suspicious to see here, just a couple of garden bushes.

The bush suddenly gets up and, on 2 very human-looking legs, hastily tip-toes across the street.

Madeline was loving her in-street entertainment…

And can be heard laughing and saying, “Reached new extremes of how to get out!”

And, in expert army style, springs back up and hurriedly jogs to the other side of the street.

The bush then, rather hilariously, barrel-rolls across the driveway.

Because bushes need to do their weekly shop too, you know!

Though don’t be getting any ideas now… For more on the antics of those breaking the lockdown rules, keep scrolling to hear how a seventy-seven-year-old faced some serious consequences for playing Pokemon Go…
