Paramotor Flight Above Iguazu Falls with Rafael Goberna

“Hit the skies with paramotoring legend Rafael Goberna as he explores Brazil’s Iguazu Falls from above.”

With their usual flair for wild rides, Red Bull brings us an all-new extreme sports installment—this time of Rafael Goberna flying over the famed Iguazu Falls. Prepare to get goose bumps as you paraglide over Brazil’s breathtaking land- and waterscapes.

Up on The Housetop – Pentatonix

“Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?”

Pentatonix and LEGO join forces to create this cheery music video rendition of a holiday classic. The LEGO band members sing a capella and beatbox as they drive us from a Christmas living room in our world to a wondrous place hidden behind all those presents.

Mark Zuckerberg

“When Max started walking, I wanted to capture the whole scene with a 360 video so our friends and family can feel like they’re right there with us. Here it is!”

Mr. Zuckerberg once again highlights the novel possibilities of 360 video by capturing his son’s first steps. Using 360 video to document such a landmark moment in Max’s life allows us a kind of immersion never before possible. “Reliving” a precious memory has never been quite so literal!
