The world was captivated last week when a Facebook video shared to The Shanghaist showed a trend, which reportedly began back in January, in which a bride’s veil literally flies across the room — on its own! — at high speeds before gracefully dropping directly over her head.
According to BuzzFeed, there’s more to this little trick of the mind than meets the eye. While the accessory appears to be levitating unaided, there’s actually a mechanism behind it, as the veil is attached to invisible strings hanging from rails on the ceiling.
While there’s no explanation as of yet for how, exactly, the elegant piece of fabric manages to detach from the rails before landing oh-so-perfectly on the head of the bride, it was no matter to people on Twitter, as the video has racked up more than six million views to date and counting.
