Fireworks by Grucci spells it out for MrBeast with Verge Aero drone present – Drones Information
Nevada, USA – Fireworks by Grucci, the latest partner to invest in Verge Aero’s high-performance drone show technology, recently completed a slightly different project for YouTube superstar MrBeast when he decided to have some fun with some serious fireworks in the Nevada desert.
MrBeast – real name Jimmy Donaldson – is a YouTube phenomenon that draws over 38 million subscribers with its videos of elaborate challenges, attention-grabbing stunts and breathtaking philanthropy. With every video that is quickly viewed tens of millions of times, he brings his unique kind of fun to an impressive global audience.
For his latest video, “I Bought the World’s Greatest Fireworks,” MrBeast commissioned Long Island-based fireworks from Grucci to design and produce all of the professional fireworks effects. Filmed in a location not far from fabled Area 51 (a place long associated with strange lights in the sky), the video shows MrBeast and his friends launching an increasingly spectacular array of explosive effects, from a dollar -Fireworks for consumers through to a huge array of 16 handcrafted 24 inch air shells made by Grucci.
Fireworks by Grucci adds a touch of “slight relief” to the pyro demonstrations and shows its investment in a fleet of Verge aero drones that the company is adding to its unique pyro and fireworks capabilities. The drones were used to play a gag that was written in words in the night sky, apparently in response to instructions spoken on a walkie-talkie. A fleet of 120 GPS-guided drones formed the words that were preprogrammed before the flight.
The display was created and controlled in Verge Aero’s innovative proprietary software while the drones were launched from a special security zone. This meant a small crew could easily complete the project and work in accordance with current COVID-19 guidelines for safe work, including social distancing and use of personal protective equipment.
The fireworks display from Grucci’s President and CEO Phil Grucci says: “We are very excited to be working with Verge Aero. We were very impressed with the capabilities of their drone technology, which is specially tailored to the specific needs of entertainment. It’s a great new addition to the fireworks and pyro displays we’re known for. “
He adds, “This show was great fun and great results. We all look forward to using Verge Aero’s technology on many shows in the future. Thanks to you and MrBeast for inviting me to join the experience . “
“We’re delighted that our friends at Fireworks by Grucci have included Verge Aero on this show for MrBeast,” said Nils Thorjussen, CEO of Verge Aero. “With live entertainment during the COVID-19 crisis, social media has managed to hold and even grow its audience, and MrBeast is one of its stars. His videos are crazy, funny, and heartwarming and they keep millions addicted. It was a real pleasure to see how our drone technology plays a role in this phenomenon.
