In a truly mesmerizing moment, just as the man turns down one route, his pathway to freedom is blocked as another yellow shelf is moved directly into his way, forcing him to turn around.
Viewers of the video were surprised by the worker’s enounter with one describing it as “a true horror movie”.
Another said that it was similar to the dystopian franchise, The Maze Runner.
It’s not clear how long it took the worker to get back out onto the main packing floor, but it gives an astonishing insight into the workings of one of the enormous 110 Amazon active fulfillment centers that exist across the country, with a further 185 around the world.
