Aussie Bloke Wants People To Get Back Into The One Finger Wave While Driving
When you're driving in rural Australia, you might come across a familiar scene.
The driver in car coming in the opposite direction to you might chuck their hand up with a wave or, at the bare minimum, raise a singer finger while their hand stays on the steering wheel.
Nine times out of ten countryfolk will know each other's cars because Australia's backyard is pretty sparsely populated. It's a nice, fun, Aussie tradition that has existed for decades.
However, it's not much of a familiar sight when you get closer to the city as seemingly no one knows who is in the opposing car and many will just keep their eyes locked on their lane.
But one bloke wants to make the one-finger wave more of a thing across Australia.
Aidan Farrant uploaded a TikTok video to his account and is calling on all Aussies to get back into the wave and make everyone feel more welcome.
In the clip he said: "We have a bit of an issue that we need to address...especially on the south coast of New South Wales.

"Now, as you can see I'm driving along a road with cars coming towards me. Now, when I pass a vehicle, generally a 4x4, I normally give them the old *whistles and puts up one finger*.
"Now, it's just straight up Australian culture that when someone gives the old flick, you give 'em a wave back."
Aidan said he was dismayed when he went to the south coast of NSW and didn't have many people return his kind gesture. He added that as soon as he went over the Blue Mountains however, nearly everyone gave him the old flick.
"I really don't think it's too much to ask. But when you're driving, if some young fella gives you the old flick...it's really not that hard to just wave back," he said
Aidan has hopefully reignited a movement that has existed in Australia for ages and, who knows, everyone might be doing it to each other in the cities in no time.
He's told LADbible that thankfully he hasn't received a knock at the door for filming while driving.
