WATCH: Not your everyday commute - escaped ostrich causes commotion on highway Newsdesk Newsdesk

It's not something you see on your everyday commute.

Footage of an escaped ostrich causing a commotion on a major highway has gone viral online.

The large bird was filmed running down the fast lane on the Federal Highway in Malaysia.

Jeff Sandhu uploaded footage of the chaos onto his Instagram account.

He told The Star Online: ""When I came by it, the ostrich was running from the Universiti Malaya bus stop heading towards the Federal Highway. It blocked traffic at the bus stop as cars stopped to see what was happening."

"It blocked up five lanes on the Federal Highway," he added.

Cars were careful to remain behind the flightless bird. And, yes, it did adhere to the local speed limits.
