OK not so much, but it could have fooled alot of people. I hadnt seen any reports of flying people in NYC, but if there had been, here is the explanation:


What looked to be three people were spotted flying around the skies of lower Manhattan last Friday, causing a lot of double-takes and dropped jaws from onlookers. But while it appeared to be a sight straight out of a comic book, it was actually a clever bit of viral marketing for this week's upcoming film "Chronicle." Those aren't people in the air, but some very intricately designed radio-controlled airplanes. Watch the video of their flight, and keep reading to learn how it was done.





Flying People

Its actually pretty cool looking and to get a close up view of the rc planes and how they were constructed is also worth the watch.

I can imagine if I had seen this things flying, the lat thing nI would have thought of was a viral marketing ploy for a movie, but that's exactly what this was.

Kinda makes you think what else that has been spotted in the skies has such a mundane explanation.

The weather balloon excuse was going down like a lead zepplin and the swamp gas ploy was starting to smell fishy. :p

Sachyriel holds no opinion on the idea of flying people being something novel, he considers it a fact that's mundane, not exciting.

It really is, just a matter of time before one of these viral marketing stunts results in absolute tragedy when the status quo ATS user sees something similar with their own eyes, freaks out and does something drastic.

It's a fine line to be walking IMO.
