With the new Fantastic Four movie on the way, viral ad agency Thinkmodo decided to make a real Human Torch.
The best way to do that? Drones.
Drones, and fire.
The stunt took place at the Nassau County Fire Academy, with plenty of firefighters around in case things got out of hand. A flammable mannequin was attached to a drone, set on fire, and then flown around. Another drone followed, filming the action.
The results were surprisingly good.
Like, Hollywood CGI good.
For some reason, this is supposed to make you want to see Fantastic Four in theaters this month.
Really, it's just a cool stunt in its own right.
