A person is filmed from a distance swinging. But in what direction is she seated: facing the camera or back to the camera? (Response at the end of this article.)
Are you still looking for a hot topic of debate for your Christmas Eve? An American internet user has uploaded the nugget you need. On a video published Sunday, December 22, a person is filmed, from a distance, swinging in a snowy playground. But in what direction is she seated: facing the camera or back to the camera?

On social networks, the battle is fierce. Each camp tries to convince the other, animations or photos in support. Here's to the back-to-camera proponents …

HE’S DEFINITELY LITERALLY FACING THE BUILDING NOT THE CAMERA !!!
I MEAN LOOK AT HIS LEGS AND KNEES.
YOU CANT STRAIGHTEN YOUR KNEES LIKE THAT IF YOU’RE FACING THE CAMERA UNLESS IF YOUR KNEES // LEGS ARE BROKEN OR SOMETHING. PERIOD. pic.twitter.com/cYprqsgc7M

And here are for those who assure that the person is installed in front of the camera and back to the background building. They rely in particular on the fact that at the climax of their ascent, the person passes behind the horizontal bar at the top of the swing. Likewise, it passes behind the vertical posts which maintain the structure.
If he was facing the building we wouldn't see the bar in front of him. pic.twitter.com/LaFsGcCjyY

The person is facing the camera. The person’s body goes behind the leg of the swing set. If the person was facing the building, their body would go in front of the leg. pic.twitter.com/6EMZO2wqka

The American BuzzFeed site (in English) launched a survey among its internet users, who were very divided on the question: Tuesday, at 6 p.m., 30,600 estimated that the person was facing the camera and 28,800 swore the opposite.
To find out the end of the story, BuzzFeed interviewed the author of the video, Eric Tupper, on Sunday. He says he filmed the scene last February, in Alaska (United States). “We were in a house and we noticed this person swinging. We went on the terrace and we realized that some saw it facing us, others from the back. So I took some videos to prove which way it swayed. I published it on TikTok two days ago and it all started from there. “
If BuzzFeed does not give the verdict, the answer is ultimately found in an old message posted by Eric Tupper on Twitter. The author of the images had already published the video in February and had put an end to the mystery in a reply to another internet user: “We drove to school, he was in front of us.”
We drove up to the school, he’s was facing us
