Casey Neistat has had a tremendous 2016 as far as viral videos go. He kicked off the year on a high note with his video of him snowboarding through the streets of New York City after a blizzard in January. That video racked up over 15 million views. Then in September Casey shared his experience living in the lap of luxury while flying in a $21,000 flight from Dubai to NYC in Business Class on Emirates Air. That monster video has accumulated over 28 million views on YouTube. Casey is set to close out 2016 with one last incredible video and it is sure to go super viral.
How would Casey top those viral videos? Oh, just by building a badass drone that is strong enough to tow him into the sky as he skis the scenic slopes of Finland.
Neistat lamented how there was no drones strong enough to lift a human being, so he partnered with Samsung and built one. After more than a year, the result is a massive aircraft with 16 rotors that whirls like an actual helicopter and lifts Casey 25 feet into the sky.
In less than 24 hours, the video already has over 3 million views on YouTube, and Casey is poised for yet another viral video.
Here’s the behind-the-scenes of the epic video.
