LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Several Los Angeles commuters received quite the surprise when they were greeted by an unfamiliar Uber driver in Southern California.

Hollywood resident Josh Paler Lin recently posed as Batman while working for the rideshare company in order to play a video prank on his passengers.

To customers, Lin’s Uber account showed he was a registered driver named Ming who traveled in a Toyota Prius C.

But here’s the catch — when each customer received an alert that “Ming” had arrived, they were greeted by the Caped Crusader traveling in a Lamborghini.

Nonetheless, each passenger didn’t seem bothered by the prank.

Lin posted the video of the prank to YouTube on Monday, which has since been viewed more than 378,000 times.
