I can’t stop watching this magic pool vine
Now you see him, now you—wait, what?
I couldn’t know, when I started griping about how it would get up to 90ºF in New York today, that a bit of wizardry on Vine would be just the refreshment I needed. Call it a summer miracle.

It’s just a matter of time before this dude figures out how to mount an act in Vegas.
