Okay …. not seriously. Originally when I saw this, I thought it was going to be a video about trying to kayak on flooded streets, but it’s actually the opposite.

These are kayakers jokingly “paddling” through completely dry streets during the California drought. As you may know, the California drought is a very serious, ongoing problem that has dried up a lot of waterways throughout the state.

Thus the inspiration for this admittedly very funny prank! The kayaks, of course, have wheels attached underneath. If I’d seen someone “urban kayaking” past me on the sidewalk like this, it totally would have made my day! I have to say, it actually looks like it might be a pretty fun way to get around too; it’s definitely an easy way to part crowds!
