Some things are too strange to even try and explain.

Nonetheless, we'll give it a go: this footage from a security camera at a driving school in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil appears to show a cyclist being knocked off his bike by a passing truck, before a mattress magically appears to break his fall and leave him totally unharmed.

We've watched it about 20 times and we're still not sure where the mattress comes from. Watch below and see if you can work it out - the second video has a closer look.
