Mama Mia! Teen appears to float in mid-air while doing a Mario-style ‘double jump’ on a boat
- The teen was on a boat through the waters of Panama City, Florida
- He started jumping the waves in time before going twice as high
- Captain Scott Nguyen, 27, filmed the young man jumping in front of his boat
This is when a teenager seemingly performs a physics double jump, a move often seen in video games.
Captain Scott Nguyen, 27, was carrying passengers through the waters off Panama City, Florida, when his chartered boat encountered some choppy conditions.
A young man at the bow of his boat was timing his jumps with the waves and Mr. Nguyen started filming him.

Mr. Nguyen made a perfectly timed jump with the boy ‘floating’ in the air.
This makes him appear to be performing a physically impossible ‘double jump’.
The double jump is a popular part of the video game movement, made popular by game icons such as Mario, Sonic and Crash Bandicoot.
The boy uses the movement of the boat bouncing over the waves to his advantage, jumping at just the right moment when the bow tilts slightly upwards
As if his other jumps weren’t high enough, the wind catches him at just the right moment on the last jump of the video and shoots him straight up.
In the Super Mario Bros video game, it is known as the double jump or the jump in the air. It’s a move that allows characters to jump a second time while they’re already in the air.
Mr. Nguyen, from Panama City, Florida, said, “The video was shot off the coast of Panama City.
“My client double jumps on a wave on the bow of the boat and goes higher than expected.
The video shows the boy climbing significantly higher than his previous jumps, earning him the “double jump” title, a popular part of the video game set made popular by game icons such as Mario, Sonic and Crash Bandicoot.
“At least he wasn’t hurt.
“We all had a good laugh about the video.
“I’m really glad we have the footage because it’s hilarious.”
