A Queensland man who was caught holding on to the back of a moving Woolworths delivery truck has been reported to authorities.

Footage of the man — shirtless and wearing low-rise denim shorts — was posted to the Woolworths Facebook page on Monday.

In the short three-second video, the man is seen clinging to the handles on the back of the truck while it drives around a roundabout.

As the truck turns, the man can be seen struggling to hold on to the truck.

The video was posted to the Facebook page along with the caption: “Good to see you offering a taxi service."

“Hope the driver gets a new truck for Xmas as it has a bad crack in it," the user added, making fun of the man's low rise pants.

Police notified of reckless stunt 

A Woolworths spokesperson told Yahoo News Australia they are looking into the incident and have reported it to police.

"We take safety seriously and strongly condemn this reckless behaviour," they said.

"We’ve reported this matter to the Queensland Police and asked our delivery partner to look into it as well."

There's no evidence to suggest the driver was aware of the person on the back of the vehicle.

Woolworths' awkward Covid mistake at store entrance

Shoppers at a Woolworths store in a Melbourne Metro store struggled to check in after the QR code was lost among more than a dozen other notices stuck to the door.

A man posted a picture of the entrance to the Southern Cross station Woolworths Metro store on Twitter on Sunday, highlighting the problem.

The store later replied to the tweet, saying management at the Southern Cross store had been notified.

"We've shared this with the store management team for their immediate awareness and review," Woolworths said.

"We appreciate the time taken to share your feedback with us. We hope your next shop with us will be a positive one and have a nice day."
