It’s no secret that goldfish have a reputation for being dumb. We all know how the insult goes: “______ has a memory like a goldfish.” Sure, goldfish are one of the dullest and stupidest pets to have, but is that ‘three-second memory’ stipulation fact or fiction?
Forget everything you think you know about goldfish. This video will blow your mind.
With no magnets, strings, or any trickery whatsoever, this Japanese man guides four goldfish through a synchronized swimming sequence. Either this guy is a professional fish trainer, or he has a lot of free time on his hands.
Watch as they obediently swim around the edges, side to side, and form a single file line. He manages to maintain complete control of the fish with his bare hands and never touches the water. Even the interviewer can’t believe it.
Now if only we could do this to women.
