Visual artist and YouTuber Zach King is known for his short videos full of digital creativity that highlight improbable scenarios. His most recent video, shared on August 21, is an homage to the looming solar eclipse. The video shows King and another man, dressed like construction workers, carrying a ladder and a large orb, similar to a lightbulb, up a cliff. They pause in front of the sun and erect the ladder. King ascends it and “unscrews” the “bulb” of the sun, causing the entire world to go black. He then replaces it with the other bulb, causing the world to be illuminated once more. The video has been viewed nearly 1.5 million times on Instagram in two hours after it was first shared. Credit: Instagram/Zach King via Storyful
