Before you read any of this, just watch the video above for a little bit and see if you can wrap your head around it. It took me a while to get it. OK, so this video was filmed underwater at Saarijärvi in Vaala, Finland, where the stars stood upside-down on the underwater surface of the ice and mimicked fishing while using air as water. Crazy, right?
According to a commenter on reddit, the way they were able to do this is by wearing drysuits, which are insulated with air. That way, their boyancy became the analogue to gravity and they just oriented themselves to stand on the ice. Even with the camera trickery aside, the video is positively beautiful and makes me wish I could come up with an idea even half as cool.
