There’s something to be said about a video that uses no dialogue, has seven words of text while not deliberately making a statement, and yet has 6+ million views on YouTube. It’s not even a Fail video.
What it is, is possibly one of the most incredible 1:26 of footage redefining “birds-eye-view.” Some brilliant man (which unfortunately I was unable to find any solid information about) affixed a small camera to an eagle to capture this footage, as the eagle flew through the Mer de Glace (Sea of Ice) on the northern slopes of Mont Blanc, in the Alps in France.
There’s nothing I can really say to do the film or the experience justice, so I’ll just be over here hitting replay.
