What has six rotors, a gas-powered chainsaw, and a penchant for blasting snowmen heads to shreds in the freezing forests of Finland?
Give up?! It’s the KILLERDRONE! And it is the literal embodiment of the phrase “death from above.”
The video of the KILLERDRONE! (yes, that it is its real name, capitalized text and exclamation mark included), was recently posted to the YouTube channel mistyfridayfilms, which is aimed at making “films that reach out and touch people.” In this case, the people are snowmen, and the touching is less of a gentle tap on the shoulder, and more of a cherry bomb in your palm.
The aerial death machine is the handiwork of “Crazy Finnish farmers,” and appears to essentially be a hexacopter with a remote-controlled chainsaw attached to it. Aside from blasting snowy domes, the killer drone also appears to be able to turn its chainsaw sideways, allowing for genuinely useful work, like cutting down trees. Although this function may be an April Fool’s joke or some other kind of tomfoolery, as the chainsaw in the horizontal position is only seen in GoPro shots, making the function hard to verify.
If watching this thing is giving you some Terminator flashbacks (flash-forwards?), you need not worry, for as every sci-fi film or television show has ever taught us, this killer machine has an Achilles heel that can be exploited by we lowly humans. In this case, that weakness is party balloons.
How afraid are you of this thing on a scale from Lore on a bad day, to Donald Trump in a mech suit? Let us know in the comments section below!
