Merchant Navy sailors have fun on board, viral video leaves internet users wide open | Tendency

Have you ever thought about what it’s like to be on a merchant ship? Every day is a challenge for sailors who stay on board for months to lead a seafaring life. However, these Merchant Navy sailors found complete entertainment on board in this viral Instagram video. The video, which was filmed by a sailor, shows another sailor cooking while the ship is in motion and everything on board moves freely.

The viral video was posted by an Instagram user named Shekhar Kandpal, a merchant seaman. The video opens to show a text insert and location that adds context to the clip. “Free entertainment place in the ship.” The user posted the video with the caption “1 lakh+ views. Part 2: Sea waves help me come back to me.”

The video shows things like crates and a chair moving back and forth inside the ship’s galley. Even the furnace opens on its own due to the rocking motion of the merchant ship. The sailor preparing the food then acts like a superhero, trying to pull things towards him.

The video was posted on August 8 and amassed over eight lakh views and 68,000 likes. It also prompted several users to post comments with laughing emojis.

One of the users commented, “Actually, you can create a video and post it on YouTube as a horror video.” “You don’t need to run for things while you cook,” wrote another. A third user posted: “So even if the ship is chased it will be confusing to know.” Recalling the lyrics to a popular Hindi song from the movie Koi Mil Gaya, one user commented, “Idhar chala Mai udhar chala.”
