Drone followers ought to get a kick out of the product placement available within the new Tom & Jerry movie, which was launched in February 2021 in theaters in addition to by way of a one-month simultaneous streaming launch on HBO Max.
While the movie acquired typically adverse opinions from critics, there’s one scene that caught the drone trade’s consideration as a result of it prominently encompasses a DJI drone.
The film’s plot is centered round a stolen marriage ceremony ring and a ruined marriage ceremony. The drone is available in at a chase scene, the place the animated Tom and Jerry characters pursue a dwell motion character by way of each an electrical skateboard and a DJI drone.
Lucky for you, you don’t want to observe the complete Tom & Jerry movie. DJI shared a 30-second clip that includes the drone on its Twitter account, and it’s fairly charming:
The drone controllers are very clearly the DJI controller type (actually, they even say DJI on them). Tom and Jerry haven’t paired their smartphone to the controller which is the most typical approach to fly, although a smartphone is not required to fly a drone.
The drone will not be fairly as particularly tied to any DJI drone, although it most carefully resembles the DJI Spark drone, which has since been discontinued from manufacturing in favor of the improved Mavic Mini drone (although you may nonetheless discover them on the market at most main retailers together with Amazon). Surprisingly it’s not the newly-launched DJI FPV drone, which looks as if it may have been a match given the premise of the scene.
This will not be the primary time drones have made an look on the planet of Tom & Jerry. An episode of the third season of The Tom and Jerry Show in 2014 was titled “Drone Sweet Drone” and basically highlighted the mischievous characters’ antics whereas using one.
