PAIHAI, New Zealand, Jan. 4 (UPI) -- A man captured video of a group of fisherman attempting to tackle an "only in New Zealand" problem -- loading a massive 765-pound blue marlin into their minivan.

A.J. Heijns posted a video to YouTube showing the fishermen moving the gargantuan fish on a wheeled cart in a parking lot in the town of Paihai.

"Only in New Zealand, mate," a spectator can be heard saying as the group approaches the rear of a minivan.

The men work for about two minutes to transfer their big catch to the back of the vehicle.
