Video of the Day: M.C. Escher’s Waterfall IRL

Escher’s famous Waterfall print, a work in which water appears to be running uphill through an aqueduct. As we’ve always been easily confused by both physics and the work of M.C. Escher, we’ll let you watch the clip and do the explaining on this one. There’s got to be some kind of trickery at work!
