Ice fishing ... under the ice? [video]

By Shane Graber - Posted Jan 30, 2012 08:00 AM
What is exactly going on in this surreal video? These divers seem to perform some pretty interesting underwater stunts - scooping "water" into buckets and then pouring it into a wheelbarrow. They also do a bit of underwater ice fishing on the side. See if you can guess what is going on before you get too far into the video.

Ice fishing - under the ice?

This video was shot by Juuso Mettälä at Lake Saarijärvi in Vaala, Finland. All-in-all, the video took six divers to film: three actors, the cameraman (Juuso), and two safety divers.

It took me a bit of time to figure out what they were standing on and what they were scooping and pouring. The shift in perspective throws you for a loop until you pick up on the visual cues for what is actually happening.  :)

I should note that the wheelbarrow, balloon, and rubber duckie were all saved from the lake after the shoot and are sitting safe at home with Juuso.
