Video of 'floating broom' goes viral on TikTok

What's keeping this broom in the air ? Image Credit: TikTok / @theonenamedlucca
A short clip of what appears to be a broomstick floating in mid-air has left a lot of people scratching their heads.
The perplexing footage, which was uploaded a few days ago by a delivery driver who goes by the name @theonenamedlucca on TikTok, shows what looks like a straw broom floating around 40ft in the air above the road.

Resembling a typical witch's broomstick like something you might expect to find in a Harry Potter movie, the peculiar object seems to sit motionless and with no visible means of propulsion or support.

The driver even gets out of his vehicle, showing that it is not simply stuck to the windshield.

He has also since emphasized that the footage has not been edited or doctored in any way.
So what exactly is going on in the clip - is there really a broomstick hovering in the air or is it an optical illusion of some kind ? Alternatively, could the whole thing be a clever hoax ?

There really is no way to know for sure what the truth of the matter is from the video alone - broomsticks don't just hover in the sky, so either it's a trick of some kind or the footage has been doctored using computer software.

Either way, it's certainly intriguing and as of writing, the clip has been viewed over 8 million times.

There's no trees that high in the video.

Probably a lie. You can see from the video that there's no trees that high.

@Helen of Annoy You forgot to park your broomstick.

Maybe I am wrong here but I would think if people came across a floating broom (or anything for that matter) they would do whatever they could to work out how exactly it was floating. Additionally I would think it wouldn't take too long for more people to report it while also taking video. As always, one dude, short video and no other reports. Nonsense.

Don't these Witches know anything. An invisibility potion only makes the user invisible.

It look more like a seed or a flower than a broom.

It's a Halloween decoration! Heck, I saw floating ghosts, witches, bats and other monsters this past Halloween!

It reminds me of that time I left a broom in the middle of room, just for a second, while I do something else, and my husband immediately seized the opportunity to say: "Hey, you can't parklike that!"
