Walking Backwards Through Tokyo In Reverse

This month old video by Simon Bouisson is simply mind-blowing. To create the stunning visuals in this clip, Simon walked backwards all around Tokyo. Then he reversed the video to make it appear that he was the only one walking normally while the rest of the country was somehow in a constant state of rewind. Truly stunning!
