[watch] Cool Drone Video of Minneapolis Bowling Alley Going Viral
A one-take drone video of Bryant Lake Bowl and Theater in Minneapolis is making quite the buzz online.
If you're looking for a quick escape from your ordinary online experience today-- whether that's working from home or just scrolling through your social feeds-- check out the video below from right here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
It was shot at Bryant Lake Bowl and Theater, which is located on the corner of Bryant Avenue and West Lake Street (as the name might imply) up in Minneapolis. It's a cool bar/restaurant/bowling alley/cabaret theater all in one. I've been there and it has a really cool, old-school vibe-- you won't find any bumpers or computerized scoring at this 8-lane alley-- it's old school all the way-- and you keep score with a pencil and paper. It's SO old school, in fact, their website says they're still using the same 'new-fangled' automatic pin-setting machines that were originally installed in 1959!
But this video, which is going viral online right now, is definitely high-tech. It's shot in just one continuous take-- without any editing (or so it looks, anyway)-- and features the drone flying in and out of the building, up and down the bowling alleys, through the pin-setting machines, back into the bar, through the theater and finally back into the bowling alley. I won't give away the ending, but I'm guessing they might have to get a new camera and/or drone. Make sure you have the sound up, too.
You've gotta check it out below. It's a pretty cool look at a business that's called Minnesota home, on exactly the same spot, since it first opened back in 1936. And speaking of being around for a long time, keep scrolling to take a look at the states where PEOPLE tend to stick around too-- and see which are the states where people live the longest!
