‘We’ve slipped into a different dimension’: People left baffled by TikTok video which appears to show a woman ‘frozen in time’ while walking down the street
A bizarre video in which a woman seems to stop dead in her tracks and freeze while walking down the street has left people baffled.
The TikTok video, which was filmed somewhere within the UK, appears to take Snapchat footage in which a woman has been filmed walking on the pavement.
However, as the clip zooms in and focuses on the blonde woman, who is dressed in a black jumper and white trousers, she is completely still.
She remains totally still for several seconds, before snapping out of it and continuing to walk as normal.
After the short clip went viral, with more than 300,000 likes on the platform, people have left comments indicating they are bewildered by what she was doing.
A video has gone viral on TikTok in which a woman appears to be completely frozen in time while walking down the street
The clip appeared on TikTok account @unknown1575489 with the caption ‘NPC found lacking’.
‘NPC’ is a term used in gaming which refers to a character in the game that is not controlled by a player.
It is now often used as slang to describe somewhat ‘glitchy’ or ‘robotic’ behaviour of human beings online.
The camera zooms in on the woman, who has her knees slightly bent and her arms out, and appears completely still.

For a few seconds, she remains that way until she then switches and stands up completely straight, and then continues to walk down the street.
While the occurrence seems to be a little odd, the words written over the video suggest it is even more unusual than it first appears, as it is claimed the woman had been standing still for a minute before the cameraperson began filming.
Responding to the video, people expressed their bewilderment at what they were seeing.
One person wrote: ‘Sometimes I think we’ve slipped into a different dimension.’
Another viewer, who was clearly spooked by what they had seen, said: ‘That’s not even funny, I’d be sh***ing myself, she literally snapped back into reality.
‘I can’t imagine that’s a joke there’s no one around.’
One particularly nihilistic viewer made the point: ‘We see things like this and it proves that nothing is real nor does anything matter…and we still pay our bills.’
However, one person reckoned they had figured out the reason for the ‘glitch’ in the woman’s movement – and suggested the video had been edited by the person who posted it to make it look like the woman had frozen in time.
‘Good edit,’ they joked. ‘Almost looked real.’
