While we don’t condone running away from the cops, or doing anything to make them chase you in the first place, this man’s humorous hiding place is definitely worth a watch.

A video clip filmed in what looks like a workshop shows a man in dark overalls telling the cameraman he knows the perfect way to escape from the cops.

In his hands is a piece of flexible metallic ducting pipe, often used in heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems.

Almost as soon as the video begins, the man runs enthusiastically across the room, holds the piping above his head and lets it cascade down over his body.

As if by magic, the ingenious escapee disappears from sight leaving what could be believed to be an insulated pipe sticking up out of the floor.

To complete the illusion he tilts his head forward so the pipe appears to be connected to the wall.

Since the video was shared to YouTube by user articfox95 two days ago it has been viewed more than a million times.

One user complimented his “impressive stealth” while another hoped to see the ingenious method featured in a film and a third declared: “This is what YouTube should be.”

Some viewers even suggested the insulating quality of the material could stop thermal imaging cameras detecting the heat from his body, making him even more elusive.

We don't think our intelligent police officers would be fooled by this method though and we're sure they'd soon be in 'hot' pursuit of their suspect.
