Plato. Confucius. Decartes. Aristotle. Calvin Harris? The shirtless Scottish DJ may have just become one of the greatest thinkers that time will remember by posing a tremendous query on Snapchat: ‘how do flies breathe?’ Good question! Click through to watch the bizarre clip!
It’s always exciting to get a surprise shirtless Snapchat from Calvin Harris, but his November 26 video came with something a little extra. Calvin, 32, paced around his backyard in the sunshine, showing off his ripped abs. He then posed a question to his followers: “How do flies breathe? Something I was never taught at school. These kind of questions come to me when I’m out in nature. I’m here and among all this nature and I start thinking.”
To drive his point home, he ended the video with the word NATURE, in all caps, stamped across his incredible six-pack. Please, for the love of God; did someone answer his question? Well, we’re going to help Calvin out if nobody else will. Flies, like all other insects, breathe through openings in their bodies called spiracles. Oxygen enters through the spiracles and goes through the fly’s trachea. They breathe by expanding their body in and out. Glad we could be of service!
It’s great that Calvin’s taking some time to reconnect with nature, since he’s been so busy in his professional life. His song “My Way”, and its music video recently dropped, and the world is still in a frenzy over whether or not it’s about his ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift, 26. Calvin would probably rather watch some nature docs and ponder how flies sleep at night, though.
