I've seen the first, filmed on the so-called vomit comet style aircraft used for space training I believe.

Wonder if shot in one run? That was a long time to fly the near parabola needed to cancel gravity.

Thanks Mick. 27 seconds is about double what they could manage a few years back using one of the Boeing 7** series. The ground gets a bit close for comfort.

I love their videos. Not sure though that the accompanying song is always as good as the visuals. The zero gravity "Upside Down" song isn't too bad, though.

The umbrella + mono-bike one is probably my favourite in terms of getting the video AND the music right: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1ZB_rGFyeU

On the other hand, I like their song "Do what you want" but the videos (versions 1 and 2) aren't as amazing as their other videos. But the song is great so maybe for me that's the key thing. And here's a quirkier version and video of the song by Nataly Dawn (of Pomplamoose fame): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oF-GCZQ0QpM

Years back I took a ride on a vomit comet. :sickinbed: Once your stomach adjusts to the free-fall, it was fun. :bouncing:

I loved that crazy video.
