It’s not a bird, it’s definitely not a plane… it’s a Human Torch drone, and it’s on fire.

What better way to celebrate the new Fantastic Four movie than by launching a flaming drone into the sky?

YouTube channel DidThatJustHappen did exactly that, rigging up what the team behind the channel described as a Human Torch Drone.

The remote-controlled, person-shaped drone trailed flames behind it, and we’re hoping it wasn’t spotted by any clueless bystanders, because it would be pretty alarming to see what looks like a flaming human body flying through the air.
