An undated video of a man climbing a tall palm tree and cutting it while sitting on top has left netizens baffled after it went viral on social media.
The video, which was shared on Twitter by @RexChapman, shows a man effortlessly climbing the tree and then cutting off the top part with a chainsaw. However, the tree is so tall that it sways and bends halfway even as the man maintains a perfect balance and clings on to it.
Captioned “Ever seen anyone cut a really tall palm tree?”, the video has been viewed over six million times and has been flooded with netizens responding to the viral post.

While many expressed shock over the man climbing the wiry tree, others wondered how he finally reached the ground.
I want to see the rest of this. How did he get down?

Raise your hand if you were expecting the guy to fly off the tree

I feel like there’s probably a better way to do that but the video wouldn’t be as good so I like it
