Lorry given hilarious horn that’s making drivers do a triple-take

Forget the Vengabus, the Venga TRUCK is coming and its customized horn needs to be heard to be believed.

The video was shared by a 16-year-old Scottish truckspotter and it’s going viral, with 16.3m views already.

The TikToker who shares his videos via @trucker._.scott is standing in the middle of a dual carriageway crossing as the unmissable truck approaches.

The truck flashes its lights and sounds its unique, customized horn as bystanders wave.

Instead of the dixie horn you’d expect, the horn blasts out the 1998 banger, We Like To Party by Dutch Eurodance group, The Vengaboys.

The consensus in the comment section is that it’s a Basuri air horn.

Basuri designs musical horn systems that are designed to ‘not only grab people’s attention, but also be entertaining while asking them to move lanes’.

These horns are more common in India, Indonesia, and the Netherlands.

For buses, trucks and heavy goods vehicles, a bunch of tunes are available including Baby Shark, La Cucaracha, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, and We No Speak Americano.

In the UK where the video was filmed, it’s legal to have musical horns fitted but you still need to have a regular one.

“Only in Dundee,” one commenter said, apparently confirming the location of the video.

“The fact it’s so out of tune only makes it better,” another said.

“The last thing you hear before your family of four is hit by a semi in a fatal accident,” said a third.

One said it would be impossible to take the horn seriously, saying road rage just wouldn’t be the same.
