Patents are often interesting, fanciful things, illustrating inventions that may or may not ever be built. However, when you turn a patent idea into a somewhat animated and slightly offensive explainer video linking the inventions to popular Hollywood war movies, the result is nothing short of art.
YouTube user PatentYogi did just that with a descriptively titled video: “Boeing just killed the plot of Black Hawk Down.” In the span of two minutes, we see the video’s host turn into an insurgent and fire rocket-powered grenade towards a cartoon Black Hawk helicopter. But then Boeing’s new invention stops it with a net! It would be funny to make light of the situation if Black Hawk Down wasn’t based on actual events, but hey, art is art.
