"Enjoy this video along with us, as we really try to believe a seagull would actually pick up a tiny GoPro video camera and fly with it for a few blocks, depositing it on a rooftop. We’d also like to believe that its owner would be able to find the camera afterward.
After you’ve virtually soared along with the sea bird on its majestic flight — where you can hear it breathing and see its perspective from aloft — and after you’ve laughed out loud at the goofy sounds the 'seagull' makes toward the end of the video, come back to earth for a moment.
Realize that the company that makes the GoPro camera is quite adept at viral videos. Another hint: According to the video’s YouTube description, the seagull allegedly 'stoled' that camera in Cannes, France, the location of a well-known film festival.
Probable conclusion: After scores of action videos featuring snowboarders and daredevils, apparently GoPro has branched out into skillfully produced simulated Seagull Cams. Brilliant.
Here’s another example of GoPro’s viral video prowess in a more straightforward clip that garnered 3.1 million views." *
