I'd rather swim. At least people don't laugh at you when you're swimming.

Looks like a novelty thing to me. Has anyone seen it go up on a plane?

The story behind it was it was going to be used in the new Star Wars movie but then they realized there was no water in the movie.

Maybe - it looks like it might be some type of surface effect craft. If so, I could see it hitting those types of speeds, as those things are closer to low-flying airplanes than planing boats.
