You can file the video below as both “accurate” and “unexpected.” Watch below to see a medieval reenactment take an odd twist as a Russian gentleman decides to hurl his spear at a flying drone. Apparently he has spent “many a fortnight” practicing because around 16 seconds in you can see the drone take a direct hit.
Looking like a scene out of Monty Python, a guy in Russia dressed in medieval garb knocked a drone out of the sky with a spear.
The impressive feat was fortunately caught on the victim’s mounted camera. Try to disregard the awkward fighting going on in the background and aim your focus on the bottom left part of the crowd. Around the 16 second mark you’ll see a man dressed in black emerge out of nowhere.
Remember, you are looking for second 16 or so.
