Two resourceful guys carried a huge table parasol to cover themselves from heavy rain.

Filmed during a heavy downpour in Shanghai, China, at the end of November, the ingenious pair grabbed anything to hand.

Walking through the Easy China Normal university campus, the two are carrying a huge Pepsi parasol.

Shown on the Instagram page Shanghai Observed, another one of their friends joins them to take refuge from the rain.

He said: “I couldn’t get over the size of the umbrella.

“It was raining really badly but I suppose people have to get to class.

“It was pretty ingenious really.”
