If you’re in need of something to totally mesmerise and chill you out, this video of a lemon rolling down a hill should do just the trick.

The video was posted by podcaster, photographer and writer Mike Sakasegawa who is based in San Diego.

He captioned the video, which has so far been shared approximately 18,000 times (at the time of writing) and has 62,000 likes, as follows: “Today as I was walking home after my run I saw a large lemon rolling down the hill. It kept rolling for about a quarter mile. And now you can see it, too.”

The video, which has been viewed over a million times, lasts for around two fascinating, blissful minutes:


If you’re wondering about the fate of the lemon, Mike was kind enough to post updates letting tweeters know that he had brought it home, given it a wash and now it sits proudly, curiously in his kitchen.




People have been alternately soothed, uplifted and baffled having watched the video.
