Have You Seen This? The never-ending escalator ride

Posted May 7

ONE MAN'S FUTURE — Now let’s just jump right into this video, shall we?

What you see seems pretty simple. A couple has decided to take the escalator, but they appear to have no idea how the contraption works. This poor couple is stuck in an eternal loop as they try their best to walk down an up escalator. It’s like trying to swim up river, only drier and more frustrating.

It may seem the man shooting this video is making fun of this couple, but I don’t think that’s it at all. This is not mocking, this is utter disbelief as this man records actual proof of time travelers. I feel this is the only explanation for what I’m seeing. Or at least the only explanation I’m willing to accept.

This couple managed to fall into a time portal and ended up in the year 2017. I have no idea when they come from, but it was a time before escalators. This couple has been managing fairly well in the future and are adjusting quite well. They found a place to live, they’ve adopted modern styles of clothing and they have learned to blend seamlessly. Well, that was true until they encountered the moving staircase, that is.

The couple from the past saw everyone on this magic black stairway and didn’t want to look out-of-place and decided to go with the flow. But little did they know, they had gone against the flow and are now fighting the perpetual motion of the mythical stairs. The couple eventually realized progression was futile, threw in the towel and went back to their time, frustrated and frightened of the static future.

Good luck, time travelers. Thank you for giving 2017 a shot.
