There’s something so satisfying about seeing something formerly covered in grime, soot and dirty being baptized and emerging clean once again.
For starters, look at this filthy truck being cleaned!
There’s a world for this satisfying phenomenon particularly in the art world – art restoration.
Although we’ve seen some pretty terrible examples in the media the past years (remember the woman who ruined the portrait of Jesus?), when done right, it can be incredible to see.
Watching it all happen in real time is even more amazing than seeing a car or a wall become pristine again.
Watch this 200-year-old Jacobean oily mess get cleaned up right before your eyes!

The difference, we think you’ll agree, is incredible.
And people all around the world are clamouring for live streams of similar works.
Others made memes, of course!
Others were in awe at the process behind the restoration and how hard it would be to achieve.
Whilst the video mesmorized others and had them questioning a career change.
