I love it, it's close to Gandalfs smokeship.

Possible fake?
Kjellbjarne (guest)  -  April 4, 2006, 17:02
No way it's not possiple!!!

It is not a fake, looks really cool.

fake. water circles can not grow and then shrink again and slow down and then speed up.
Terraldo (guest)  -  April 5, 2006, 14:08
Thats SOOOO fake!
Enselic (guest)  -  April 5, 2006, 15:01
It is not cirlces of water, it is cirlces of air, and the magic change in speed is due to flow in the water (which cannot be seen).

i think him being underwater is real ,but the air ring is big load of horse crap.
Draken (guest)  -  April 10, 2006, 00:01
This is actually not too hard, Iwe been doing it for some years myself, just never videofilmed it ^^
EZ (guest)  -  April 11, 2006, 01:18
This is not fake... Enselic is right. BTW air does move towards the surfice in different speeds depending on the size of the bubble. Bigger=faster

At first glance it looks fake, but I don't see it as a big stretch to believe that the effect is possible. I've never tried to blow a bubblering before, so I wouldn't know.

fake? are you nuts. Ive been scubadiving for 20 years. that can almost everyone do!

that is cool is is fuking incredible

The rings shrink and grow based on the pressure from the water flowing around the other ring. When the ring gets smaller, it floates to the surface faster. After it clears the larger circle it expands, slows down and the one under it starts to contract, repeating the cycle. Air bubbles are a popular past-time for scuba divers, snorkelers and small whales, like dolphins and pilot whales.

ok, though it still looks like a special effect it`s really cool. maybe I am gonna try it too :)
It follows the laws of physics (guest)  -  June 9, 2006, 13:56
First I thought this was fake for sure. But after reading Sorcerers post I wached the video again. The rings actually are moving just according to the laws of physics. The flow of other circle affects the movements of the other, creating a cycle.

yup, try proping your legs on the edge of a pool, plug your nose with your fingers, and practice popping air rings, pretty easy stuff
Swimmer (guest)  -  August 2, 2006, 03:07
Of course it's possible Matt! I've done it! And it is pretty easy too.

cool effect ^_^

He should go to a dolphinarium and perform along with the dolphins. They sometimes communicate and "show off" by creating similar rings under water!
tx (guest)  -  August 25, 2006, 03:53
its real. like smoke rings. anyone know how to do it?
idiot (guest)  -  September 3, 2006, 23:29
how come theres always some smartass with some stupid xplenation concerning the psysics and stuff....just shut the fuck up nerd and just the fucking movie idiot...dosnt matter!

Definitely fake. Defies laws of physics.
Moron (guest)  -  October 27, 2006, 00:39
Fish indeed. Why? Dunno, because I like joining all the stupid people on the world I guess ;)
2busty4U (guest)  -  November 11, 2006, 01:02
this is SOOO fake!
mtrfkr (guest)  -  November 21, 2006, 05:00

Vidaeus (guest)  -  September 8, 2007, 04:33
This is not fake, it is completely real and possible. It's due to the vortex motion of the ring pulling the other ring through. It's a phenomenon called vortex leap frogging and you can find another example (along with other fluids videos) here:

Only people that sit in front of their screen all day think that this is not possible. It's not the gravity that keeps you sitting on your chair. So don't talk about laws of physics. Theres so much in the world that you would never expect to be possible, just because the coolest thing you have ever seen was done with photoshop or aftereffects. Mad world!

That was very F A K E! As it is, trying to hold the air inside the mouth and then "pushing" it out wouldn't give you a chance to creat an underwater air ring. Not saying that underwater rings aren't possible, but for someone to create them isn't.
