    Similar, but with a person instead of a motorcycle.

    He did well to keep the front wheel up, shame he found a ditch at the end. I remember Speed With Guy Martin trying this on a TV series somewhat less successfully, I think its called hydroplaning.

    Pointing out this internet trick, because we will likely see it in the future, and this GIF makes for a great example. Same GIF as above, not reversed, but flipped. Turn your screen upside down to see the original.

    But at 1:51 his dad says it all.

    I'll get right on flipping my monitor upside down...perhaps my tablet...but it automatically flips...oh well. But why is the house still upright? Looks to me the person captured the dock and run and flipped just them although the sky and lake color pallet are reverse, dunno...but I've only had one espresso and not much sleep last night...and definitely not in one of those hotels, and its been banging around in me head for 2 days now. Thanks Jon.

    There is a clue at :10 I thinked...
