A man has Storrowed his moving truck in Lego City!

On Sunday, a YouTube account shared a Lego tribute to all the trucks that get “Storrowed” in Boston. The six-second clip, complete with slow-motion footage, depicts a Lego truck getting its top sheared off as it rams through an overpass that’s just a little bit too low.

In case you don’t know, “Storrowing” refers to a cherished local tradition wherein unsuspecting truck drivers accidentally jam themselves under the treacherously low overpasses of Storrow Drive along the Charles River. It happens all the time, especially in September when students and other U-Haulers pilot their too-tall moving trucks onto Storrow despite numerous roadside warnings on the overpass clearance.

FYI, if you’re planning on moving soon: The height limit on Storrow is 10 feet. Most trucks made of Lego should have more than enough clearance.
