The nine-second clip is set on a grey cloudy day with strong winds and two seagulls are in frame.
On a closer look, you can see one seagull flying with the other one standing on top of his friend taking a ride as it fights against the wind.
As the birds lift up further, the bottom gull nips at the rider causing it to jump off and fly off on its own.
The scene looks like it's set up, reminiscent of the iconic scene in the Titanic or the magic carpet ride in Aladdin.
