    21st Century Santa Goes Snowboarding Behind a Giant Drone

    There aren’t any companies out there that make a drone that can lift a human being, so YouTube star Casey Neistat built one of his own. Dressed as Santa Claus and riding a snowboard, he clutches onto the reigns of a giant drone that pulls him up and down the slopes, lifting him as much as 25 feet into the sky.

    The stunning footage was captured in Finland. In order to pull off the stunt, Neistat partnered with Samsung over a year ago to build a massive drone, which the team calls "Janet."
