This older video by mghilla has only gone viral now after appearing on Reddit. The cameraman shows how a 1000 foot boat causes a chain reaction in the small canal in his backyard to first drain, and then overflow, causing a rip current and property damage.
As their name suggests, Amsterdam In Video specializes in all things Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Over the weekend, their first video to go viral hit the trending charts, amassing 85,000 views in just a matter of days.
In the short video, which roughly translates to Helmsmanship the canal, an extremely long passenger boat attempts to make too sharp of a turn to Amsterdam’s narrow canals. To a passerby, the boat seemed to be heading directing into the canal wall!
But at the last moment, the captain turned the engines to the left as far as possible and hit the gas. Incredibly, the boat sailed through the narrow canal without even the slightest hiccup.
YouTuber ForsakenMadMan appropriately retitles the video, “Amsterdam drift.”
