What do you get when you combine apocalyptic, real-life drone footage of the red skies over San Francisco with the score from the movie Blade Runner: 2049? You get a viral sensation that somehow perfectly encompasses the current feeling on the west coast of the United States.
The video above was posted by San Francisco resident Terry Tsai, who pretty much just spliced two great things together to make something that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
Piece #1 is the drone footage below, which was shot by DoctorSbaitso at 11am on September 9th using a DJI Mavic Air 2:
Piece #2 is the score from the movie Blade Runner: 2049, a sequel to the classic science fiction film from 1982. The sountrack was created by composers Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer.
Here’s the official trailer for the Blade Runner sequel, for reference:
