Shanghai is a city that’s as chaotic and as busy as you’d expect from a place with a population of nearly 25 million people. This frenetic video, which runs through Shanghai as if it were teleporting all over the city, gives you a glimpse of what life is like beyond its iconic skyline and tourist attractions by focusing in on the local people of the city.


Shot by JT Singh, the video can get a bit dizzying but it’s a lot of fun to watch because the transitions come out of nowhere. Sometimes you’re going through a keyhole that opens up scenes in an alleyway, while other times it’s a phone’s screen that leads to a picture that leads to being inside a family’s home. Oh, and there’s a really cool sequence involving food too.
