People are convinced there’s a ‘glitch in the matrix’ after plane spotted not moving in sky

People are convinced there’s a ‘glitch in the matrix’ after plane spotted not moving in sky

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a glitch in the matrix?

A video of a plane seemingly hanging in the air has got people questioning whether life is really just one great big glitchy simulation.

In the viral clip, the passenger plane looks as though it's frozen in time as it levitates above the traffic below.

Check it out here:

What you reckon then? Definitive proof we are living in a video game or something like that?

A TikTok user by the name of Tania posted the clip with the caption: "Glitch in Matrix? This isn't the first time I've seen this in Chicago either."

The video has been viewed 1.2 million times, and some people were as baffled as Tania.

Commenting on the video, one viewer wrote: "I would've had to pull over & get out to make sure I was seeing this correctly…. This is wicked lol"

Another said: "Can't no plane just sit in idle… yeah definitely a glitch."

A third added: "dude this confirms way back I saw a plane stay in one spot and looked at everyone around me they thought I was nuts..."

Indeed, there were loads of people who attested to observing similar baffling sights while driving - though none of them seemed to be aware of the fact that filming something moving in the opposite direction can make it appear stationary.

But yeah, let's call it a glitch in the matrix and abandon all our prior beliefs eh, why not?

Defo looks stationary in this screengrab. Must be a glitch.

Of course, this world is full of weird, wonderful and confusing moments, and sometimes it can be hard to rationally explain them away.

Last June, for example, a woman was left convinced that we're all living in a simulation because of a run-in with a lemon.

Sharing a video of herself preparing food in a kitchen, the woman behind the clip explained: "You can see me grabbing a lemon, right. I cut it in half and then I cut it in half once more right there.

"You can see me cut it, then I go get a bag, I grab the bag and go back for the lemon, and I grab the lemon and I touch it and I'm like "why is it not cut in half?'

"I am freaking out because the lemon wasn't cut in half any more. It was literally intact, you can see me in the video cut the lemon in half. This has never happened to me and I don't know how to act, I'm freaking out."

I don't suppose the sentient machines that simulated our reality were particularly thrilled about having their master plan foiled by a lemon, but who are we to judge?
