The first thing that you will notice when watching this video of this guy walking through Tokyo is that every other person in the entire clip is walking backward. The opposite of which is actually true: the man, Ludovic Zuili, is the one walking backward but the video is being played in reverse. Think about that for a second.
This video is actually a short preview of a 9-hour movie that was aired in its entirety in France called Tokyo Reverse, part of a bizarre TV programming trend called Slow TV that has been regarded as a “small revolution.” According to the BBC, similar video projects aired in Norway include a 6-day video of a ferry journey through the fjords which attracted viewership of more than half the country. Is straight reality, in real-time, the new reality TV?
