Drone Company's Ad Is Ridiculous

Don't get me wrong.
I like drones (until they become sentient and starting hunting us all down).
I am a proud owner of one myself, but this ad by drone maker DJI is utterly ridiculous.
(I don't own a DJI one by the way). 

And it's ridiculous because it doesn't take into account:

1) the noise drones make (no wonder these fantastic drone shot videos you find on Youtube are always dubbed with music),
2) their mass,
3) the danger from the rotating blades if you get too close, and
4) the maneuverability in a closed space (the lack thereof, as it is pretty limited unless you're a super expert).

Here's a more realistic version:

And here's the last portion of the realistic version.
It is well worth enjoying on its own.

One Second A Day Video Brings Syrian Civil War To The United Kingdom

A non-funny post this time.

The civil war in Syria has been going on for more than four years now.
The dead are around 250,000 and the misplaced are over 4.5 million, many (if not most) of them children.

What would it be like for a British child if a similar war was actually happening in the UK?
And would that make us empathize more with them than with the Syrian children being affected by a real war right now?

This very creative video by the organization Save The Children shows us and asks us to donate.

Update 9/5/15! Well Cassetteboy obviously doesn't like Cameron, but it seems that British voters do. Oh well...

Youtuber Mario Wienerroither has made some of the best musicless music videos.
Check some below.

Musicless Britney Spears - Oops!... I Did It Again

Musicless David Bowie & Mick Jagger - Dancing In The Street

Musicless MacGyver

And something different for the end, and maybe even the best in my opinion...

Speechless Obama
