So Much For Reindeer, Santa Uses A Drone

‘On Dasher, on Prancer, on Donner and… Drone-y?

YouTube sensation and horrible Santa look-alike Casey Neistat is unofficially the first person to fly suspended by a drone.

And he’s definitely the first to do so through a small village in FInland dressed as Santa.

Neistat, with the help of YouTube filmmaker Jesse Wellens, carves up the slope by towrope before launching off a snowy ledge—and flying away.

Neistat and a small crew built the custom drone, which they claim is the only one that can lift a human being.

This thing may carry Neistat, but we doubt it’s hefty enough to lift Saint Nick more than a few inches.
