At Dairy Queen, employees are expected to serve ‘Blizzards’ upside-down as testament to the denseness of the soft serve treats.
A certain location in Panama is apparently bringing the brand’s policy to the next level by literally turning its outlet upside-down, and the trick is confounding internet users.
The stunt sees a Dairy Queen personnel standing on the ceiling of a kiosk and handing out desserts with a smile, as if it’s all in a day’s work.
“I have so many concerns,” wrote one viewer. “Is she getting a head rush? What’s keeping her grounded? Are the people standing in line really upside down and she’s right side up? Oh, my brain.”
Viewers have offered their theories about how the optical illusion was pulled off. Some suggested the employee was supported with a harness, while others deduced the brand used a mirror to visually turn the floor the other way around.
What is the cold hard truth? Either way, the trick is truly flipping people out—and it’s not just the employee in the footage.
