Remember that unrealistic opening scene in La La Land when everyone got out of the car during a traffic jam and just started dancing?

It's just happened in real life.

A group of around 30 men and women in China decided they had enough of waiting during a traffic jam and decided instead to come out of their cars to dance.

The commuters in Shandong city were filmed bursting into a synchronised song and dance on the emergency lane. 

According to one onlooker in the video, the group danced for around 10 minutes.

It is not yet clear if the dance was planned or if the group belonged to a flash mob, but they look pretty spritely for people dancing in -1°C (30°F) weather. 

"Which company organised this?" said one netizen on Chinese social media site Weibo.

"They seem so passionate about their dance!" another commented.

Others weren't so optimistic.

"The emergency lane is meant for emergencies. This is so dangerous and irresponsible!," one netizen said.

Oh well — maybe some scenes should only be played out in movies.
