If you were around the Marina Bay area over the recent F1 weekend, you might have seen Franky "flying" over the water.

A Stomper alerted Stomp to the incident and took a video of the man zipping through the air on a hoverboard on Sunday afternoon (Sep 16).


Another Stomper shared a video that was circulating online of the same mysterious 'flying man' wowing onlookers who had crowded near the water body.


Facebook users Riduan Yusoff and Elsn Ong also posted their own videos of the unusual sight.

Onlookers compared the 'flying man' to fictional supervillain Green Goblin riding on his glider. The videos are indeed real and not products of some clever editing. Franky was invited to perform and showcase his invention for the F1 Singapore Grand Prix. He briefly explained his invention and how he "flies like a superhero" in the clip below.
