Footage of a Helicopter Blades Synced Up with Camera Frame Rate is Amazing

What's cooler than a helicopter? A helicopter with static blades. 

On Twitter, people are sharing video footage of what happens when you sync camera frame rate with the speed of helicopter blades, and you can see why. Watching a helicopter just float into the air is strangely satisfying and very, very cool. 

Check out some of the footage below.

A haircut, helicopter ride, playing fetch, tobogganing, swimming, and fist bumping are all in a day's work for Mr. Bentley. Must be nice!

A dramatic rescue in Sachse, Texas quickly took a turn for the funny on Friday, when a local cop was brought on a lengthy joyride over a farm.

In the video above from FOX 4 news, the unnamed officer is airlifted by a Department of Public Safety helicopter after his car gets stuck in the rising flood waters.

The news anchors covering the event watch as he attaches himself to the harness and soars off to safety.

But once they’ve reached dry land, they don’t let him down very quickly. Instead he is taken on a 4-minute long flight across some cow-filled pastures while the world watches and the anchors laugh.

“Where are they taking him?” asks one of them, to which the other replies “It’s kind of an odd sight, isn’t it?”

They joke that maybe the extended trip was punishment for ruining a perfectly good police car.

He was eventually lowered to the ground, and will likely rise up to viral video stardom.

“He’s happy to be out and safe,” another cop named Lt. Marty Cassidy told WFAA news. “He knows he’s not going to live this down.”
