Yesterday, some hilarious footage emerged on the Only in New Zealand Facebook page, of Invercargill Mayor Tim Shadbolt scootering around the neighbourhood. 

The video immediately went viral, leaving Shadbolt shocked:

"I did a bit of online stuff for the campaign [and] I was lucky to get 100 hits talking about council policy.

"Then I go to the shops to get some milk and I get 120,000 or something."

FVM had a chat to the Invercargill Mayor this morning and it's nothing short of HILARIOUS!

69-yr-old Tim Shadbolt explains that he was simply going for a ride with his 4-yr-old son; yup you read that correctly, 4-yr-old son.

He even cracks a joke about the age gap himself, which makes us love him more!
