Memphis - When police pulled over a Tennessee couple and told them a body was lying on the rear of their car, they thought it was a joke — until they got out to look.

They found an unconscious man who had somehow remained on the trunk for 23 kilometers.

Driver Carl Webb told reporters he had left the Memphis in May barbeque festival before the officer pulled them over.

Memphis police say in a statement that Officer Benjamin Huff noticed what appeared to be a man on the black Ford Taurus traveling about 65 mph down an expressway and pulled the car over.

After alerting the couple he woke the man, who was disoriented and did not remember leaving the festival.

No charges were filed.
