Katy Perry performs onstage during "The Prismatic World Tour" at Madison Square Garden on July 9, 2014 in New York City.  

In what could be a funny outtake from Mad Max: Fury Road, Katy Perry was spotted comically trying to ride a segway at Nevada's Burning Man festival over the weekend.

Perry later posted a second video of her father, Maurice Hudson, giving a visual demonstration of how to successfully operate a segway. "You need a lesson, this is how you do it," he tells his daughter in the clip. The singer responded with a simple, "Thanks dad," in the caption.

Burning Man 2015 was held Aug. 30 through Sept. 7. Check out Perry's IG post of a fireworks display at the festival in the video below.
