As someone who programs AI systems, I do find this funny. We’re getting extremely good with image processing, and it’s actually amazing how far we have come in the past five years.

Aside from the way he flails his arms, like he is trying to run punch the air to go faster, the way he tries to keep his torso perfectly vertical while running is just weird.
