Netizens use household items to trick people into thinking they are on a plane

Very creative.

There’s been a recent trend of people pretending to be on a plane with the help of household items.

The template of the video usually follows a protracted shot of what appears to be a plane window, the camera will then pull back to reveal a person who is most definitely not on a plane.

If you have not seen them, here are some examples.

Cool.

How these videos are taken

The execution of these short videos is fairly simple.

First, you need an establishing shot of some nice scenery.

Then you can take any household item with an egg-shaped gap or whole such as detergent containers.

Take a close-up short of the image through the gap showing only some edges of the container.

While detergent containers are most commonly used, some also utilise used cups, plastic stools and even toilet seat covers.

So creative.
