A new YouTube video shows two fighter pilots creatively using gravity to pass a Snickers bar between them.

In the 11-second clip, a pilot gently lets go of the candy bar and tips it so that its trajectory lands it in his copilot’s hands. The copilot then gives his partner a thumbs-up sign.

The video — dubbed “How to Pass Snacks to the Rear Seat of a Fighter Jet” — has amassed more than 50,000 views since it was anonymously uploaded to YouTube Tuesday.

The anonymous nature of the clip and its high production value lend credence to suspicions that it’s actually a Snickers advertisement, but, as the Daily Mail pointed out, it could be a way for the two pilots “to keep their identity a mystery while having some fun.”
