Clever PR Stunt Creates Illusion of People Flying in New York City


My friend @Tonewise sent me the video below last night. It’s a clever PR stunt to promote the upcoming film ‘Chronicle’ (trailer also below). It’s about three high school students that start to develop superhuman powers. And we all know with great power comes great responsibility…. Things unsurprisingly start to go awry.

Back to the PR stunt. It’s three human shaped RC planes being flown around New York City to create the illusion of people flying through the air. It’s quite clever and executed well enough that we’re writing about it. Check out the vid below! Must have been a fun day of flying; and confusing a few New Yorkers :)









For those still interested, here’s the trailer to the movie…
