Incredible Drone Ad For A Suburban Bowling Alley Goes Viral

A drone-filmed advert for a suburban bowling alley in the US has gone viral thanks to the remarkable vision shot via a drone.

The 90-second spot was shot for the, admittedly rather photogenic, Bryant Lake Bowl And Theatre in Minneapolis in Minnesota and starts high above the building before shooting through the doors and up the alley itself.

The footage is the work of drone operator Jay Christensen, 25, and director Anthony Jaska, 35, both Minneapolis locals who undertook the job for free with the aim of helping local businesses affected by COVID.

Such is the stunning footage, it has since gone viral with more than 90,000 upvotes on discussion website Reddit where viewers marvelled at the speed and skill on show.

The ad also proves that you don’t need a big budget and crew to make eye-catching work these days.

Check out the cool footage below:

Commenting on the film, Jaska told PA news agency: “Those small businesses have taken a major hit, obviously because of COVID, but then that whole area is in ruins at one point. It looks like some buildings have been bombed out or something like that.”

Christensen added: “We thought it would be a great way to help them, and also it’s a great way to see how we can be creative with that one-take shot.

“To me the hardest move was going behind the pins. That was really stressing me out… and I ended up getting it 15 of 15 times.

“It ended up being that the hardest moves were actually just getting in the front door to start. I was on the phone with the guy that was opening the door and I was like ‘action!’” Christensen said.
