Take a shot in the duck and guess where motorists were ducking for cover when an oversized, inflatable duck went blowing down the street on Thursday.

If you guessed Duck Moines, Iowa, you nailed it. 

Marc Wallace caught the quacky scene on video and it's gone viral with nearly 400,000 views at the time this story was published. 

Warning: video contains fowl language, no curse words though. 

The duck was apparently part of Duck Moines' YESS Duck Derby, which raises money for Iowa's Youth Emergency Services & Shelter (YESS), a network that provides care to kids in need.

One minute everything is normal in Iowa and the nest minute it's way more than it's quacked up to be.
