With the reopening in mid-May 2020, the Mercedes-Benz Museum debuted a new drone video. Alongside the “magical installations, the highly dynamic clip casts a spell of enchantment on the viewer with flight sequences that top anything seen to date,” in the hyperbolic view of the communications department.
Well, they were not alone. It was a success right from the start: the video has already been viewed a total of around six million times in the first few days. Do not miss this wild ride unless you are prone to motion sickness or abhor flying roller coasters.
The videos were created with the help of mini-drones, weighing less than 100 grams and carrying high-resolution 4K cameras. The drones, the size of the palm of one’s hand, can hover through small openings whilst filming – oh no were going to crash inside a Gullwing – through open doors and into the interiors of classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
The video, about four minutes long, can be viewed on the social media channels of the Mercedes-Benz Museum (@mercedesbenzmuseum on Instagram and Facebook, @MB_Museum on Twitter) as well as on many further social media channels of the Mercedes-Benz universe (for example, YouTube: https://youtu.be/LT0_SzhY4W8).
