Michael Jönsson was inspired by a video of a man sprinting between underground stops in London that went viral last week.
His film isn't as slick as the one made in the UK, but it is starting to gain momentum online.
The Local spent Monday morning chasing Michael Jönsson for a comment, but even on social media he was difficult to catch.
He later told us via email that he found the international interest in his video "very exciting".
The runner, 28, works as a system developer at technology company Knowit, in Stockholm.

But whereas Londoner James Heptonstall was applauded by morning commuters when he arrived at his destination, the bus driver in Michael Jönsson's film appeared completely nonplussed by his passenger's achievement.
