Family filmed trying to force giant sofa into tiny car

A family in Sheffield has unwittingly become an Internet sensation after being captured on film attempting to shoehorn a large sofa into a small family car.

The video, which was uploaded to Facebook by an onlooker on Tuesday, had received more than 50,000 hits at time of writing, and has even prompted a spoof remake set to the Benny Hill Show theme tune.

Three people are shown trying to manhandle a three-seat sofa into the back of a small car in a task that seems doomed to failure from the outset.

They are then shown removing the cushions in a last ditch attempt to defy the laws of physics.
