The Nintendo Switch is obviously a gaming device and that is its main purpose, but that doesn't stop people from doing some creative experiments. The latest creative endeavor is a short film from Russia that involves a Switch, a banana and, among other things, skydiving.
The video, created by Valera Boluchevsky and Richard Chirkin is straight out of a drug-induced hallucination, with the Switch being offered as an upgrade to an old SNES. From there, you get a variety of short adventures, from playing on an apartment roof, to playing while riding on a bike and a train. They then jump out of a plane, which is apprently the first time a Switch has been taken skydiving. The good news is that they apparently remembered to pull the ripcord.
And, all the while, the banana and a mysterious helmet-wearing man in yellow follows them around. A plunge into the water sans Switch breaks the supposed dream sequence.
It's whacky, crazy and off the wall, and probably an appropriate item to present as we approach hump day. Dissect and enjoy.

I have no words, it makes no sense to do this.
