In the video, our bricklayer is so quick and smooth at his work, he doesn’t miss a brick. He has a skill that is undeniable. I’m willing to bet when he gets off work on a Friday, he heads down to the club and swings his partner around the dance floor, he’s so light on his feet. He moves swiftly from one stack of bricks to the next, deftly placing them with precision and purpose.
This man would show what oddly satisfying feels like.
That is if his back doesn’t give out on him before Friday. Many Youtubers note that he might have back problems from his labors.
“I can feel my back hurting from here.”
Youtubers also mention that this video reminds them of the game Tetris.
One Youtuber comments,
“I bet this guy is REALLY good at tetris.”
“Legend has it…this guy is the Tetris world record holder.”
In a study published in the journal Emotion, research shows that Tetris can put you into a flow state that may help stave off the anxiety of uncertainty when waiting for important results.
The study found playing Tetris was “effective for bolstering positive emotion and mitigating negative emotions.”
This guy rocks! He’s amazing for exerting efforts to his job.
In the video, it’s apparent that this man is hard working. He doesn’t hold back in putting his strength into his job. It’s flawless and definitely oddly satisfying.
