Think your cables are messy? Vietnam powerlines have nightmare knots

A totally tangled mass of power lines was filmed on the streets of Hanoi, Vietnam, in this mind-bending clip filmed yesterday (May 7).

Video shows electric poles on the sidewalk, surrounded by many interlacing wires in a messy arrangement, only about two metres from the road.

The area features distinctive bundles of exposed power lines along buildings and overhead, however plans have been in the works for years to replace them with underground wires but this has been reportedly delayed by administrative complications.
