That Was TRIIIIIIPPY: Time-Lapse Of Ocean Currents

March 26, 2012


This is a time-lapse of the world's ocean currents from June 2005 to December 2007. It's pretty trippy. Like watching your own face melt off in the mirror of a Cracker Barrel bathroom because you were tired of fighting that one piece of ham that was trying to sneak off your plate and make a break for the floor and decided it would probably be best to go splash some water on yourself. Next thing you know you and a buddy are folding little origami cranes out of toilet paper boats and flushing them. Best visit to the Country Store EVER. Plus on the ride home every one of those orange construction cones was trying to talk to you but your other buddy that was driving wouldn't turn around and you were all, "I'll come back -- we'll finish this tomorrow, I promise!" You never did though. When you woke up the next morning you realized just how rude some of those cones had been.

Hit the jump for the moving painting (best watched at 1080p).

Thanks to Debra R. ,who's convinced ocean currents were created by Poseidon to keep the location of Atlantis a secret. Finally, somebody talking some sense around here!

  • That was pretty awesome, this made me love the world a bit more thanks to these swirly oceans.

    How large a print do you want it? The youtube video is in 1080p but thats not enough to get a large poster size high quality print.

  • Its fake the shadows are all wrong

  • Boring.

    Let's see how boring you think it is if you're caught in one of those currents. If you can't appreciate the beauty and majesty of nature at least have some respect for it. That 'boring' ocean has more power in it than any gun or computer or roller coaster or whatever instant gratification generation 'cool' thing you can think of.
