This will bake your noodles. Go full-screen, then use the mouse to look around.

It's part of an ad for a high-end fly-in fishing resort in British Columbia. I don't know if I'd pay the big bucks to catch a fish, but I do know I like the video and the technology behind it.

As a side-note, the song is "Hallelujah", written by Canadian poet Leonard Cohen. It was part of our wedding ceremony when Lisa and I got hitched.

That is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while.

I gotta say, I'm not sure if I like the song or the video more - they are both amazing. Thank you for the extra nudge as I skipped watching this video earlier when someone had it in my twitter feed.

Amazing video. I must say that I couldn't help but think how bad a bird strike would suck while jamming down that river.

The other thing I noticed was that scene where the horizon and the sky suddenly became the same shade of white and he did a 180. Gotta love helicopters.

Thanks for sharing a true audio-visual experience.

That's a super cool video, and Hallelujah for the win!

It's one of the best songs ever, but if you haven't heard Jeff Buckley's version of it, you're in for a real treat. It's widely regarded as the best arrangement and performance ever produced of Cohen's classic.
