Although I’m sure this took hours upon hours of programming locations into these drones, the fact that these little guys are playing music so in-sync is very, very impressive. and a little scary.
Elsa singing Michael Jackson’s Thriller and the main characters from Frozen dancing like Thriller zombies? Sure, why not.
This gives it a very different feeling than the original, but is still great. I first heard this song as performed by The White Stripes, which is heavier but also excellent.
Here’s a live version at normal speed.
This camera is so fast, a film of a bullet traveling one foot would take a year to watch!
The synchronization is uncanny.
Here’s the original viewed side-by side with the mashup:
Starting at about 4:45, the cauldron is lit. Some time before, white doves had been released into the stadium during the opening ceremonies, and many had yet to find their way out of the stadium.
As birds are wont to do, they were drawn to a relatively high perch to check out the scene – little did the birds know they were moments away from being burned alive. Most got away, but a few didn’t get away in time.
Whose idea was it to release birds, anyway?
