FLYING HAMMOCK! Man flying in hammock with a DRONE! Must see!

A video shared around the internet this week shows what looks to a person being carried around—in the air—by a large drone. Is it real? Probably not. But woah, is it entertaining to watch.

According to the YouTube video’s description, the clip was recorded in Khashuri, Georgia. The one-minute video shows some sort of hammock being held up by a string attached to the drone. While the person is being strung through the air, you can see the hammock have some near-misses with what appear to be power lines.
