They've come a long way since that treadmill video.

According to a statement on their website, this video was filmed on an aeroplane that's capable of parabolic flight, which means it ascends and descends rapidly to cause weightlessness.

This video is also technically an advert, as they filmed with S7 Airlines. A press release explains that it's a Russian airline, and all of the training for the video took place at the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre in Russia.

Moments like this just make your head hurt.

They also stress in the FAQ that "it’s all one continuous take, but there’s a bunch of time removed."

Right, that's it. I quit. I'm joining a band.
