This morning we took a helicopter ride. It was a gift from Marita for my birthday last year.
Here’s the footage. The chopper was very loud; we had headsets to talk with, so you can’t hear most of our commentary. I’ll add a few captions, but no doubt you may spot stuff I didn’t.
Unfortunately I didn’t check the camcorder settings beforehand; it was on a setting for indoor tungsten lighting, and everything came out looking very blue. I’ve corrected the colour a bit using a filter, but it may not be spot on.
Funniest thing to watch for at the end: at the helipad were a bunch of young blokes in matching “JC” t-shirts (not “Jesus Christ”, as I first thought, but “Justice Crew“), and a film crew. They were waiting for Grant Denyer, and as we landed, they were waving at us and posturing for the camera. I guess that makes me @FakeGrantDenyer.
A couple of minutes later the real Grant arrived in another red helicopter, and they filmed it all again. Watch out for it in the promos for the next series of Australia’s Got Talent.
Anyway, the helicopter ride was a heck of a lot of fun.
