Move over Harry Potter. Reuters video captures the “flying broomstick” turning heads in Brazil traffic

In the famously traffic-choked streets of Brazilian megalopolis Sao Paulo, two men have invented a novel way of getting from point A to B – and they are raising a lot of eyebrows in the process. On a recent weekend, Vinícius Sanctus, 39, and Alessandro Russo, 28, could be seen coasting down the city’s main thoroughfares on a pair of broomsticks, each one attached to a single motorized wheel. In motion, the contraptions look uncannily like the brooms used by witches and wizards in the Harry Potter universe, described in the famed books by British author J.K. Rowling and later depicted in a series of hit films. Check out their fantastical story captured by Reuters.
