BUSHLAND, TX (KCBD) - It rained quite a bit across West Texas over the past several days. Enough that street flooding and standing water along the sides of roads became an issue.

But it also became something to have a little fun with, and a Facebook video from Bushland resident Guy Bell showed just how much fun you can have with rainwater in the ditch next to a rural road.

As of Tuesday night, less than 24 hours after Bell posted his minute-long trip, his video has been viewed more than 130,000 times and shared by 1,650 people who secretly want to try it themselves.

But, we caution you probably shouldn’t try this at home, even if it looks like a lot of fun:

Nice way to stick the landing, Guy!

Correction... a previous version of this story said Guy was from the Lubbock area. We regret the error.
