Have you ever watched Hereditary? If you have, or even if you haven’t, you should be fully aware that it is uber dangerous to pop your body out of the window of a moving car.

Apparently not armed with common sense, a foreign woman in Bali caused a scene by not only putting her head outside the window, but also the entire upper half of her body as she sat on the open car window while dancing.

The clip went viral after it was shared by several community Instagram accounts, with descriptions saying it was taken recently in Karangasem. Not only did the woman put her own life in danger, she also risked other road users’ safety with her antics. 

Commenters were mostly baffled by the incident, with some calling the foreigner “trashy” and “classless” as well as demanding that authorities deport her.

As Bali wakes up after a two-year tourism dormancy, reports of foreigners misbehaving on the Island of Gods have been increasingly frequent. 


Coconuts Bali has reached out to the local police to follow-up on the incident.
