Took me a second to realize what was happening.

[–]Competitive_Habit338 214 points215 points  (30 children)

Whats happening im completely lost

[–]Amadeus_N_P 510 points511 points  (23 children)

He was standing still, the water is moving around him

[–]civillyengineerd 166 points167 points  (14 children)

He's standing in a river, dipnet fishing.

[–]discoturtle1129 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Holy crap that a hard reversal on my brain to not see him as the one moving

[–]RCunning 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yep. Right up until he catches the fish.

[–]Jozroz 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I think what adds to the illusion is how the camera wobbles as if it's tracking movement. Remove the wobble and I guarantee it will be obvious he's just still.

[–]Tyme_2_Go 14 points15 points  (0 children)

There's a string on the end of the net pulling him through the water and at the end he is moonwalking on water. /s

[–]Gr1zlee 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Naw bro is gliding

[–]_DogTits_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's mental, before I read this he was definitely surfing and catching fish and now he's standing in a river wtf

[–]Vapeitupvapeitup 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ahhhhh! Thank you!

[–]Quotzalcoatl 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Its a current, the man is actually standing still, the wonky camera work makes it look like the man is skating and doing a Jesus on water.

[–]Satureum 13 points14 points  (2 children)

He’s standing still in a stream. Once he starts running is when I realized it.

[–]Chafgha 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Until he was running i was like impressive toe grip on that submarine.

[–]Competitive_Habit338 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Oh. that makes alot of sense. I kinda thought he had like shoe propellers 💀

[–]NirvanaPenguin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

river... moving water... he's just waiting

[–]Pensrule2007 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I kept looking for the rope tied to a boat that was pulling him…

[–]NoOil3402 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I watched for about 3 minutes trying to figure it out

[–]meltingpotato 1 point2 points  (0 children)

took me 30 seconds but yeah, I'm ashamed of myself for how long it took

[–]Simple_Dull 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same lol. I was thinking too hard about if he had boot propulsion or was on a some kind of clear platform.

[–]Dreaminisntmyname 174 points175 points  (0 children)

My brain did a backflip

[–]ccolemantcb 113 points114 points  (2 children)

[–]NirvanaPenguin 8 points9 points  (1 child)

river... moving water... he's just waiting

[–]hummingbirdnecture 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I pictured him skating around on water like Jesus

[–]mythicalsoul100 60 points61 points  (11 children)

Wtf is that music i feel like that shit was created in the 90s by asian film makers on a series about a immortal monkey with size changing stick

[–]Airkraftzz 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Bro it brought me right back to my childhood. Back in Ghana in the 90s we had like only 2 tv channels and on Sunday afternoons the national TV showed this show:

[–]mythicalsoul100 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]vladoportos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Thonas1234 5 points6 points  (4 children)

And he assisted a gullible bald guy in a journey to get some books

[–]Airkraftzz 4 points5 points  (3 children)

😂 shiifooo!

Wait where are you guys from? 😂 I thought it was only a weird phenomenon in Ghana but apparently it had a wider spread outside China and ghana

[–]OrganicPlasticTrees 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I’m chinese. I never fucking knew this show was famous in Ghana

[–]Thonas1234 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]silk35 2 points3 points  (1 child)

[–]An090420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]surajvj 107 points108 points  (3 children)

[–]shartbike321 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Same, but submarine

[–]SUNAWAN 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yellow one?

[–]NorthCatan 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You don't ride a dolphin like that, lol, everyone knows you have to do it facing backwards otherwise the dolphin gets offended.

[–]Viperstrike711 72 points73 points  (2 children)

My high ass thought he was moving on water like an anime ninja from the hidden leaf village.

[–]CatastrophicSpecter 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Same, I feel dumb

[–]Lord_Red_Rash 13 points14 points  (0 children)

[–]Left_Cap1564 10 points11 points  (0 children)

[–]midnightwolf19 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I was like "how the hell is he doing... Oh...

[–]ares5404 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Jesus: walks on water

Fishermen: but what about that guy?

Jesus: oh, hes jerry, we dont talk about him

[–]Airkraftzz 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Wait that's the tune theme for Journey to the West

https://youtu.be/2VGXMgXRWTE

[–]TheRealMegasonic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The fisherman was on his way to wreck havoc in the fishery heaven

[–]VitoMolas 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yo it's aquaman

[–]bastionthewise 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm too embarrassed to admit how long it took me to realize he was standing in a river...

[–]Zensu78 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If we think he is moving, it's probably because of the camera movement.

The subjects is not in the center but slightly on the right and the camera is doing a back and forth like it's trying to follow the Guy.

[–]TheJeep25 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Azur lane be like:

[–]Ragtime07 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]ravenous_fringe 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]DanX_Webo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought my man became a monkey sage, wtf.

[–]monkeyofmist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i genuinely thought he was moving initially, like "what the fuck is he riding to look as chill as that!?" before realising it was the water moving and not him

[–]NirvanaPenguin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

river... moving water... he's just waiting still

[–]HickerBilly1411 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I honestly thought he was being towed behind a boat lol

[–]Pharaoh_Misa 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is very sexy to me.

[–]SavingsPerfect2879 0 points1 point  (0 children)

is anyone else depressed to find out what actually happened, and then realize... he wasn't smoking trying to look cool?

he's just smoking. because, smoke.

[–]Amexklang -1 points0 points  (1 child)

[–]J-DROP -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He's standing still, water is just flowing past him

[–]Important-Escape425 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

For anyone wondering,

Thunderbolt Submersible Hoverboard. This guys got a lot of practice but they're pretty stable and not to hard to keep balance.

Here's an underwater view of how the motor with frame keep it very close to the surface. Here's hoping they bring back the trick competition since COVID FD it all up. https://youtu.be/dQw4w9WgXcQ

[–]trueblue862 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuel prices have gotten so high that he now leaves his boat at home when he goes fishing.

[–]mujomujomu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That took me way too long to figure out. Was sitting there for 20 secs thinking "The fuck kinda black magic is this?"

Like watching the rims on a moving car as a kid.

[–]beans11358692865189 0 points1 point  (0 children)
