Tesla's self-driving system went haywire when the vehicle drove behind a horse-drawn carriage on the highway, confusing the rudimentary way of traveling with a large semi-truck.

The video has been viewed more than 590,000 times by users who seem to find the mishap humorous - one user commenting that the 'car is confused, time travel [is] not part of the programing.'
