This time-lapse mural video depicts a piece by a street artist by the name of Mister Thoms. 'Like A Vision' is a representation of people's addiction to social media and obsession with getting likes and virtual feedback on Facebook. The mural features a crazed looking man with Facebook branded blinders and multiple speech bubbles around him with the word 'like' in it. The symbolic thumbs up icon is on a string dangling from a stick stuck to his head, similar to a carrot on a line.

The time-lapse mural video shows how this piece was completed. The Italian street artist's work is poignant and surreal, with a humorous element as well. In addition to murals, Mister Thoms is a cartoonist, filmmaker, painter, sculptor and writer.
