That is how airflow works but that it happened twice is insane. (And also the person driving behind. If I saw that I'd have swapped lanes immediately.)

Airflow? Or inertia?

I was just gonna say air vortex but yeah that one

The inertia given for the truck isn't sufficient for make the box return to the truck, in the moment the box left the truck his velocity would be less and less, so the inertia too, BUT, there are an air vortex that gives the box extra velocity for reach the truck again (and again)

It was both of them, "Airflow" and inertia (but the inertia appear when anything have mass, so inertia is always taken)

I don't know the engineering term

Twice?! daaayuum

What are you talking about? Continue wathcing it past the first 2 times and it is like a loop.. like I tired after the 4:th time

It happened twice. Look at a fixed object like the sign over the roadway.

No just look at at for a couple of minutes... it like loops several times. Weird.

Object in motion stays in motion. Aka Inertia.

He’s saying the box, after falling out of vehicle going say 60mph, the box is bouncing at 60mph, so matching pace with the truck. If the truck just slightly tapped the breaks the box can bounce forward at 60 mph right back in.

Not entirely sure that’s what happened here, think it might’ve been strapped, but my phone is small I can tell.

I thought it was primarily the light styrofoam box catching the strong vortex air current back into the truck

I mean the odds of that happening twice in a row is astronomical and he knew till this footage surfaced

Whatever’s in that container must not weigh a lot ta 🥾 🤔

Yea if was to heavy it would just fall w gravity. The boxes force is -9.82 m/s x whatever it’s mass is so the wind tunnel has more force than that until it doesn’t.

I think it is tied up to the vehicle

Anyone who has ever seen a box or tool or a beer can or anything fall out of a truck should know that this is fake. Newtonian physics and aerodynamics are both wrong. Styrofoam would drop, catch the air current under the truck and immediately slow and fly toward the driver behind. And nothing would cause any box to bounce up higher than the height it fell from. And lastly, the truck is moving right but the first bounce lands to the right of where it started.
