Picture this: you’re walking around the neighbourhood when you see this black truck with a yellow-red balloon and a sign at the side that reads ‘Black Friday Sale‘. A man emerges from this particular truck and tells you:

*MP hands the money to him, and gets in her car*

Netizens were evidently amused by the entire incident too.
I honestly don’t know which is funnier; the fact that Mdm Potatoes trusted a guy who came out of a black truck with a yellow-red balloon, or the less-than-sarcastic comments from amused Netizens.
Nevertheless, guys, make sure not to trust black trucks with yellow-red balloons.
