By now, there's a good chance you've seen or heard about the music video from OK Go, which, in one five-minute continuous shot, moves from synchronized electric unicycling to hundreds of colorful wielding twirling dancers, who, when viewed from a bird's eye view, simulate LED pixels and display words. After debuting on the Today Show, it's amassed over 3 million views in 24 hours, and a whole lot of hype.

To get the shot though, Japanese director Morihiro Harano didn't have to spend a fortune. Camera and shoot logistics aside, the sequence was filmed using a DJISpreading Wings S1000 drone, which retails for around $4,000. Here's a behind the scenes photo, showing the drone in action.
