While reading Gizmodo, I ran into this interesting, possibly real, piece of aerial video Adam Clark Estes had strong opinions about.
A maybe fake video of a GoPro tumbling off of a drone and landing on the main dance floor at Burning Man has emerged. It is now a perfect testament to what makes those three things—GoPros, drones, Burning Man—so annoying.
From the YouTube description, the video claims to be legitimate. What do you think? Check out the video below:
GoPro Falls Off Drone Into Burning Man Dance Floor
GoPro camera falls off a drone flying over Burning Man festival and lands in a pumping dance floor!
Amazingly the camera got handed in to lost and found, and this is what was on it! How good is that!
We have been getting heaps of requests for the song name! We found out it’s called ‘Horsing Around’ by ‘Uone’ (Katermukke). Awesome track!
Watching this clip, fake or not, made me want to search Vimeo and YouTube for more Burning Man videos.
About Burning Man
Burning Man is an annual festival that takes place at Black Rock City—a temporary community erected in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. The event is described as an experiment in community and art, influenced by 10 main principles, including “radical inclusion” and community cooperation, “radical self-expression”, “radical self-reliance”, gifting and decommodification, and leaving no trace. First held in 1986 on Baker Beach in San Francisco as a small function organized by Larry Harvey and a group of friends, it has since been held annually, spanning from the last Monday in August to the first Monday in September (Labor Day).
Burning Man plays host to various forms of artistic expression created for the event by its attendees and others, including experimental and interactive pieces, performance, and art cars among other mediums, often adhering to a yearly theme chosen by organizers. The event takes its name from its culmination, the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy (“the Man”) that traditionally occurs on the Saturday evening of the event.
