For some, the orbs brought back memories of the 1960s British TV series “Prison,” which featured a giant white sphere called the Rover that blocked people’s movements. Others joked that the scene reminded them of “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, when Harrison Ford, who played Indiana Jones, was chased down a tunnel by a giant double.
One Twitter user wrote: “Imagine walking home like you’ve been strangled by a giant bauble, Indiana Jones style, and no one believes you until this video.” “Life is really strange right now,” Bill wrote, simply.
