On first viewing of this video, we were shocked. It’s startling. A Russian man nonchalantly introduces a lethal flying invention; a remote controlled “weapon of the future”.
Embarking on a mad spree of destruction, he goes on to explain that the weapon is some years away from production. A slightly unnerving showcase follows as he shoots at dummy civilians and blows up cars – complete with slow motion replays. [Watch].
The video has become something of a viral sensation, snapping up an incredible 9m views – in just one week. But all is not as it seems. It’s in fact, a rather clever ad. What do you think?
