Don’t do this: Drone carrying electric razor gives a terrible haircut
But there’s still one thing drones are still very bad at — giving humans good haircuts. In this viral video, posted on October 13, YouTube star Roman Atwood decided to put a drone’s haircut skills to the test and film the process for us all to watch in horror.
“We had a good time hooking hair clippers to a Phantom drone and attempting to cut Brittney’s cousin’s hair,” Atwood wrote on his YouTube page. The name of the receiver of this dangerous haircut is Caleb.
Flying a drone with electric clippers dangling haphazardly while positioning it close enough to cut someone’s hair isn’t easy, but Atwood manages to do just that in a couple of attempts. The haircut moment begins at the 7:40 mark of the video.
And by “cut someone’s hair,” it was really more like “banging electric clippers against someone’s hair.” The final haircut looks more like Caleb was a victim of a random razor attack rather than a Vidal Sassoon model.
Thank you Caleb, for sacrificing your hairstyle for a drone experiment and the entertainment of over 4 million YouTube viewers and counting.
