Why is it that drones are still portrayed as the bad guy? We have the Lego set, made infamous by Brendan Schulman, in which a drone is shown to steal a statue and is being chased by a police helicopter. We have seen stories in which drones have been used to spy on people. And today I come across this weird animated story in which a scared-to-death girl is chased and harassed by a drone flown by her own grandfather. Instead of focusing on how drones can be used for bad, we at DroneXL like to focus on how drones can be used for good and how over 550 lives have been saved with the help of unmanned aircraft. Be sure to check out this video and perhaps leave them a comment.
Scared to death girl chased by drone for months in weird animated story
The video on Youtube starts with a girl, Velona explaining how a drone has been chasing and harassing her for months and flew by a hundred thousand times. She tells a story of how the drone was following her and made her feel uncomfortable to the point that she would lock herself up in her parents’ house. In the video, the girl wonders how legal it is for a drone to follow her like this and that it must be controlled by psychopaths.
At some point, the drone even follows her to her school. With the help from her parents, Velona turns to the police to no avail. The drone keeps following and it drives her crazy. One time, the unmanned aircraft surprised her while she was walking to school and sprayed a suspicious liquid in her face. Velona is convinced that it was poison.
Finally, her father is able to shoot the drone out of the sky with a slingshot. After crashing, the unmanned aircraft catches fire in an effort to self-destruct and destroy all the evidence. Luckily, Velona and her father are able to secure the drone’s registration number just in time. With the help of the police, they are able to link the drone to Velona’s paternal grandfather, who apparently used the device to control and spy on his granddaughter.
Seriously, who comes up with a story like this?
I would suggest that if you have a few minutes, go ahead and watch it and leave some comments pointing out how ridiculous this story is and how drones can actually be used to benefit our society and save people’s lives.
