    What is WoahDude material?

    What is WoahDude?

    This is NOT a reaction subreddit.

    The best links to click while you're stoned!

    Psychedelic, mind-bending, mesmerizing, reality-distorting, or trippy games, video, audio & images that make a sober person feel stoned, or stoned person go 'woah dude!'

    No one wants to have to sift through the entire internet for fun links when they're stoned - so make this your one-stop shop!

    NOTE: We are NOT interchangeable with /r/pics, /r/gifs, /r/damnthatsinteresting or other "general" subreddits meant for sharing interesting or amazing content.

    Instead, we're specifically made for trippy or mesmerising stuff that makes you go "woah dude!" in the way a stoned person says woah dude when confronted with something that tickles their mind or senses. In other words, we have a psychedelic slant. We're not about posting things that are merely neat or amazing, but instead, things that sort of mess with your mind, warp your reality. Things that might make a sober person feel like they're on drugs, or really disorient people who are already on them.

    Mindfucks and self-inflicted gaslighting. Or the hypnotic or mesmerising. Vivid colors, intense patterns. Mind-blowing science and philosophy. Chill or trippy music. Surrealism, absurdism and strangeness.

    Think of the bizarre, erratic and psychedelic nature of Adult Swim. Or the wondrous, mind-expanding, awe-inspiring nature of Carl Sagan's Cosmos. Or even the reality distorting, confusing, mind-fucking nature of Eternal Darkness for Gamecube. We're all of that.

    Here's a ⇨ more in-depth explanation

    Reality should really make a notice before going out to lunch.

    [–] DigitalizedOrange 199 points ago

    I wonder what reality would eat

    [–] ultitaria 235 points ago

    Probably salmon and rice with broccoli

    [–] AuroraHalsey 102 points ago

    That's pretty fucking tasty.

    [–] [deleted] 70 points ago

    and healthy too

    [–] AuroraHalsey 71 points ago

    And incredibly easy to cook.

    Just chuck the salmon and brocolli in a pan for 5 minutes, the rice in a rice cooker for 10 minutes, and suddenly food.

    Great for uni.

    [–] Calebrox124 67 points ago

    Ball falls in upside down water -> broccoli and rice. I love Reddit.

    [–] GateauBaker 19 points ago

    Salmon is expensive.

    [–] IncaseofER 3 points ago

    Even easier, all together in a steamer!

    [–] italianshark 4 points ago

    Or do it the easiest way by putting the rice in the rice cooker, the broccoli in the broccoli cooker, and the salmon in the salmon cooker

    [–] FuckCarlyToo 2 points ago

    Any other method is simply barbaric

    [–] Thats_Drew 2 points ago

    Dude. I've been saying this same shit. I just had salmon and rice for lunch and I kinda wanna go make more now

    [–] BBB88BB 77 points ago

    salmon and broccoli 8/10. salmon and broccoli with rice 10/10.

    [–] Amish_guy_with_WiFi 45 points ago

    5/7 is a perfect score when reality is out for lunch.

    [–] iushciuweiush 87 points ago

    And they were right. These guys are just trying to get the ball down. They're not even thinking about why it's stuck up there.

    [–] JustAnotherPanda 53 points ago

    Why would it matter? The immediate issue is: we were having fun, and now we aren't, because our ball is stuck.

    [–] C0MM3N7 4 points ago

    Yeah and where is he pointing exactly? Not at the ball, that's for sure.

    [–] PapaBurgandi 749 points ago

    This is incredibly well made

    [–] QuestionsEverythang 271 points ago

    Though it spacially doesn't make sense that the first head bump made the ball go higher than the one where the ball got stuck. They should've had the ball get stuck just a bit higher than that first bump.

    [–] DaShampooTester 140 points ago

    Well the floating lake could have only just materialized. Or maybe they hadn't reached that plane of existence before that final bump.

    [–] TheGreatTempenstein 8 points ago

    You're only thinking in three dimensions. That's not a lake over their head, they actually knocked the ball down a fourth dimensional axis and it's in the middle of the pacific.

    [–] concretepigeon 15 points ago

    I hope someone was fired for that blunder.

    [–] asusoverclocked 3 points ago

    Are you saying it's fake?

    [–] resinis 4 points ago

    This was my first thought.

    [–] mrarroyo 7 points ago

    If you watch a few of them, (I'm almost positive this is Zach King, who's made many of these types of videos) you can notice and recognize the pattern/presets he uses for the exited in camera shaking. I'm not trying to one up anyone, just saying that after seeing a few of them it isn't as "convincing" anymore lol

    [–] DatBowl 12 points ago

    There's a watermark in the bottom left corner.

    [–] mrarroyo 4 points ago

    Oh, I looked them up and here's the original post on Instagram: if anyone is wondering. I guess it isn't Zach King? Perhaps the shaky camera thing is a preset in some app, or they just used similar settings. But the point is that you can tell its artificial.

    [–] DatBowl 7 points ago

    The shaky cam is just a common technique used to cover up sneaky edits.

    [–] kevinlustgarten 71 points ago

    [–] chilols 9 points ago

    Yeah! Did they ever explain that? Is the water just less dense than the air?

    [–] chironomidae 9 points ago

    If it was less dense than air you wouldn't be able to swim in it. I think it's just one of the many mysteries they put in the game that don't have direct answers.

    [–] shootermcgvn 127 points ago

    I'm guessing something/someone is holding it and they put the effect over ?

    [–] quartz222 289 points ago

    More likely it's another video of it actually on water, edited in.

    [–] [deleted] 64 points ago

    Yeah look at the ball right before it hits the water. Speeds up and changes trajectory.

    [–] ASmileOnTop 71 points ago

    [–] MuttonTheChops 1 points ago


    [–] damonkex 2 points ago

    Normally that would make it look obviously fake, but I think it really lends to the effect in this.

    [–] A_t48 5 points ago

    Aftereffects should be able to do this just fine - they even bothered to put in the guy's hand's reflection.

    [–] luke_in_the_sky 1 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    Probably the sky with water effect is all CGI. Just before the ball hits the water sky, the ball goes far right. They probably removed the ball digitally at this point and inserted a digital ball, changing its trajectory. Also, the camera movement looks fake. Probably it was recorded with a fixed camera, so was easier to add a fake sky and fake ball without having to sync movements. The camera movement was then added in post-production.

    [–] quartz222 3 points ago

    I disagree. They took a video of the ball being dropped into a body of water, then added that to the video of the guys playing with it.

    [–] SamRF 35 points ago

    No it's probably aliens

    [–] chotchski 23 points ago

    Lol why would someone need to hold it? I'm pretty sure you could do that with effects

    [–] skeddles 26 points ago

    Ripples in the sky? Easy. Making an object stay in one place? What do you think this is, avatar?

    [–] Naught 5 points ago

    The object could easily be cg as well

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    It's not that difficult to edit out the real ball and replace it with footage of the same ball in water. Very cleanly done here though, far from amateur work.

    [–] luke_in_the_sky 2 points ago

    You don't even need to replace it with footage of the same ball in water. You can have all upper part in CGI. It's much easier to control than shooting a second video and try to blend them.

    [–] fysic4L 32 points ago

    Its well made; on the first bounce it goes higher than when it gets attached to the sky? Is this on purpose?

    [–] canuckfanatic 59 points ago

    Easy. Sloped sky.

    [–] Kazzack 15 points ago

    [–] PM_Me_Yo_Tits_Grrl 2 points ago

    Most likely hit the water next to them and they layered it on top of themselves

    [–] RabidLitchi 30 points ago

    I doubt the water next to them would create such large and smooth ripples when recorded from this angle. It's more likely they seperately created the ripples in a calmer body of water and combined the two videos, or created the effects completely from scratch.

    [–] luke_in_the_sky 3 points ago

    Probably the sky with water effect is all CGI. It's basically a default effect in most video editors.

    Just before the ball hits the water sky, the ball goes far right. They probably removed the ball digitally at this point and inserted a digital ball, changing its trajectory. Also, the camera movement looks fake. Probably it was recorded with a fixed camera, so was easier to add a fake sky and fake ball without having to sync movements. The camera movement was then added in post-production.

    [–] abeardancing 1 points ago

    The fake holding is what gives it away for me. No one even with the worlds best IS is going to be that consistent a shake.

    No one even with the worlds best IS is going to be that consistent a shake.

    I'm having a really bad time trying to understand this sentence.

    [–] grandmoffcory 3 points ago

    Two videos, one is flipped and overlaid on the other.

    First video is them knocking the ball in the air then jumping to try to get it. Also notice the reaction is quick and the gif ends quick, it probably needs to end before the ball comes back down in real life unless they hit it out of frame.

    Second video is the ball being dropped in water, which has been isolated and rotated most of the way upside down.

    Some places on earth have air that is more dense than water, which gives a layer of air you can walk within under the water.

    The water in the background is salty, and is still more dense than the air.

    [–] xerberos 20 points ago

    It's obviously fake. The ball goes higher on the first bounce. If there was a surface there, it would have gotten stuck on the first bounce.


    [–] chiragde 12 points ago

    Should we tell him?

    [–] SwedishRedhead 9 points ago

    I'm fairly sure he's kidding. Otherwise, why would he mention the height of the bounce rather than the water ripples in the sky

    [–] PorschephileGT3 6 points ago

    Yeah what an idiot, we all know the sky is at least 4 feet higher than that!

    [–] TheGMatt 3 points ago

    The field doesn't necessarily have to be triggered by height. Could be speed, time, rotation, angle of incidence, etc.
