Woman Captures 'Glitch in the Matrix' on Camera as Cut Lemon Repairs Itself

A woman is claiming she captured a "glitch in the Matrix" on the camera, as she filmed herself slicing a lemon, which she says mysteriously repaired itself.

The worker shared the creepy clip to her TikTok account, @Kahootdaddy777, as she narrated CCTV footage from her workplace, thought to be in the hospitality industry.

She told the story to the camera, saying: "So the craziest s*** happened to me earlier. There was a glitch, a glitch in the system.

"So in this video you can see me grabbing a lemon right, I cut it right in half, and then I cut it in half once more, right there."

She shared the security camera clip, explaining: "You can see me cut it right? I go get a bag, ok I grab the bag, then I go back for the lemon, and I grab the lemon and I touch it. And I'm like 'why's it not cut in half?'

"And my face, I'm like 'what the f***.' So I'm like inspecting it, I take it out the bag, I grab this lemon to see if I cut that one.

"I recut the lemon, because the lemon wasn't cut anymore. I'm freaking out, because the lemon was not cut in half anymore. It was literally intact."

The footage shows her slicing up a lemon, and she appears to cut it twice, but as she says, one half of the lemon later seems to be in one piece.

She continued: "And you can see me in the video cut the lemon in half. There was a glitch, this has never happened to me and I don't know how to act. I'm freaking out.

"Somebody please explain to me what happened because I need to know."

The clip, captioned "SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN #greenscreenvideo #glitchesinreallife #glitchinthematrix #wtf," which can be seen here, has amassed nearly 3 million views since being shared in May.

Numerous people were freaked out, as Maria Aybar wrote: "Nooo! This is the best evidence I have ever seen of a glitch."

Elyse Myers thought: "Nah that lemon literally moved and put itself back together."

Beautipage asked: "Anyone see the lemon move ???????"

Alex Serves Tea claimed: "I literally saw the lemon put itself back together."

Kayla stated: "There is literally no debunking this it's right there in our faces like whaaat."

Alex reckoned: "You can see that it got sliced all the way through and as she walks away the lemon slowly gets back together even as she walks back a second before."

Marissa Sanchez admitted: "My jaw hit the floor... WHAT."

Ninimoose asked: "Are you 100% sure the lemon was still whole? sometimes they get stuck together after cutting."

Amid the myriad of responses, she clarified a few points, saying: "RIGHT I thought I was crazy I'm so glad there were cameras...

"It's a sharp knife, and if you look closely both cuts are fast."

And she stressed the video corroborates her claim she sliced the lemon twice, adding: "Just to be clear everyone has their own opinion and beliefs please be respectful to others, this is just what I got from my own experience."

I literally saw the lemon put itself back together."

She shared a follow-up, addressing "comments, questions, concerns," as she re-filmed herself slicing another lemon.

The term "glitch in the matrix" is defined by the Urban Dictionary as: "From the 1999 film The Matrix: Referring to a human experiencing déjà vu as caused by the Machines altering the Matrix.

"An explanation for an unlikely or irregular occurrence."

As they stated, the blockbuster, starring Keanu Reeves as Neo, reveals human life is nothing more than a simulation created by machines, who now run planet earth.

The plot follows Neo, along with other cast members, becoming aware of this, and the line is a verbatim quote from the original film.

Trinity, played by Carrie-Anne Moss, explains in their reality déjà vu is a "glitch in Matrix," coining the term to refer to uncanny and unexplainable situations.
