A video of a tiny car following an Emirates A380 during takeoff has just been found and it’s your big morning LOL.
Looking almost like a ‘catch me if you can’ situation, the car was filmed in Düsseldorf Airport and shared via both @Cargospotter and @Emirates.
Shout out to whoever added the ‘chaser’ music, because it’s nearly too comical watching the car, which actually looks like a toy car next to the majestic A380, as it tries and fails to catch one of the world’s most famous planes.

Some Twitter peeps jumped in to praise Emirates
if you have experienced this airline, you won't like to change airline.

While others jumped in to guess why the car was there in the first place
I suspect the vehicle was air ops. If I had to venture a guess why, the 380 is huge&the outboard engines often overhang the edge lights, which could cause damage. FOD can also be an issue if the wingtip vortices kick up dirt from the runway edge. Probably just a quick inspection.
