We all know Michelle Rodriguez, actress and dater of the hottest 20-somethings on the planet, likes to have fun. She also, apparently, is one of the only people on the planet who also likes to use Instagram’s video function.

The chillest 35-year-old on the planet, she frequently updates her feed with bizarre snippets of her fast and furious life. These punctuated motion pictures incorporate surrealism, realism, neo-realism, even elements of dada. The clips are truly remarkable and make the viewer wonder: does she even realize she’s posting this stuff?

We’ll let you see for yourself. First, there’s a straightforward yacht-jump:

Next, a fun clip of her practicing her DJ skills alone while screaming “Ibiza!” and biting her lip. She’s also wearing headphones for no apparent reason:

Bon voyage Mo Fo's wish me luck surviving IBiza

She dabbles in fencing:
