On a very early morning two years ago, London resident Tom Williams saw two men preparing to paint some road markings outside his apartment. He set up up a tripod to film the process. The result was uploaded to Vimeo without much fanfare.

But the video began making new waves online this week after getting shared by Kottke. And if you watch it, it's hard not to be impressed by how the workers managed to freehand "bus stop" in a surprisingly neat fashion, guided only by some faint chalk marks and a straightedge stick.

It turns out, the process is like a delicate two-person dance with extremely precise footwork.
