And now for something completely different…..

That was the famous line uttered by John Cleese of Monty Python fame and this here clip from filming genius Russell Houghton is just about surreal enough to be fitting of such a comparison.

Taking the term ‘fisheye’ to its most literal sense, Russell has taken advantage of the small, waterproof nature of the Go Pro camera, put it in a fish tank (full of fish I may add) and filmed a whole load of skating from a true (gold)fish eye view. Madness!

There is no point trying to explain further; just watch it!
