I am definitely too jaded.

Watched this yesterday, started skipping bits immediately and got bored and turned it off after a couple of minutes.

At about 5:30, you get a look at the hardware on the ground, then they start overflying the city proper, including some batshit close passes with the top of the Burj Khalifa.

It closes with a shot of three of these guys getting into a C-130 all suited up, though, which sort of hints at where this tech is probably headed.

Love me some Yves Rossy. Dang it’s been too long since I’ve had a good fix!

But…did anyone else feel, during the little Aryan boy with the airplane scenes that it was about to cut to his mother being burtally murdered, and then smash cut to him as a hardened criminal later in life?

P.P.S. This is a nice aesthetic pairing with the No Man’s Sky post…

They could have at least given a flyby to the camps in the desert outside of town full of indentured servants who built all those cool buildings.

Hmmm, so now we know where all those chem-trails come from…
