THE BEST Pov

Holy LEGO Train

Holy LEGO Train

LEGO train fans BANANENBUURMAN and Hntrains teamed up to create an outdoor railway alongside the church bells at Citadel Square in Baie Mare, Romania. The display includes an impressive suspension bridge, elevated sections, and a spiral they rebuilt from the recently dismantled world’s tallest LEGO train spiral.

New Zealand Speedflying

New Zealand Speedflying

Skydiving expert Angus Sellen takes us on a death-defying flight through some incredibly rocky ravines of Shark’s Tooth Mountain in New Zealand. The fisheye perspective of his GoPro MAX camera captured a truly immersive visual that’ll have you holding on for dear life.

Mid-Engine Corvette Autocross POV

Mid-Engine Corvette Autocross POV

We spent some quality time behind the wheel of the new mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and we are extremely impressed with its supercar levels of power, balance, and razor-sharp cornering. Here’s some footage from our autocross run at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch. Full review to come.

Making a Pizza

Making a Pizza

Now that Buttered Side Down has figured out how to perform magic and play the violin, he’s worked up quite the appetite. To satisfy his hunger, he set about making a pizza in the only way he knows how – with a GoPro strapped to his head. We’ll have to try that pepperoni trick sometime.

Foggy Forest MTB

Foggy Forest MTB

Mountain bike rider Mark Matthews takes us on a wild first-person ride through a foggy stretch of forest on Vancouver Island. As the greenery and trees whip by, we couldn’t help but think of the speeder bike chase on Endor, just with smaller trees.

Electric Rally Racing

Electric Rally Racing

Racer and stunt driver Ken Block shared this in-car footage from his first-ever time racing in the Dakar Rally. His vehicle? The prototype Extreme E Odyssey 21, a badass all-electric rally car that makes 550 hp and 679 lb-ft. of torque. It might be quiet, but it’s deceptively quick.

Learning the Violin

Learning the Violin

Playing a really, really slow version of the William Tell Overture in a grade school concert was as far as we got learning to play the violin. But POV video maker Buttered Side Down is more determined to build his skills than we ever were, and he’s also got a great teacher.

Amazing FPV Drone Shots

Amazing FPV Drone Shots

We’ve previously seen some of aerial photographer Viggo Koch’s work in his amazing rollercoaster fly-alongs. Now, Viggo has released a reel of some of his other breathtaking first-person drone shots from 2019, from snowy mountaintop landscapes to dusty rally races.

GoPro on a Lathe

GoPro on a Lathe

We’ve seen lots of cool things turned on lathes over the years. But one thing we’ve never seen is what the wood sees as it spins around. Mr. Michal decided to clamp his GoPro into the business end of his lathe to see just what that might look like, and the result is unsurprisingly dizzying as it ramps up from 14 to 1800 RPM.

A380 Night Landing

A380 Night Landing

This amazing 4K footage from High Pressure Aviation Films is the closest that most of us will ever get to landing a modern jumbo jet. The view from the cockpit of the Airbus A380 offers up a fantastic show of nighttime illumination outside, and digital displays inside.

Drone Chases Roller Coaster

Drone Chases Roller Coaster

Racing drone flyer Viggo Koch captured this epic aerial footage as he chased down the twisty and turny Helix roller coaster at Liseberg park in Gothenburg, Sweden. Note that the coaster was unoccupied at the time of the shoot for safety reasons. Check out more of Koch’s amazing drone vs. roller coaster footage here.

Driving 380mph

Driving 380mph

The Bloodhound LSR team marches closer towards their land speed record goal with a jet-powered car that could reach speeds up to 1000mph. Testing has been going well with some crazy fast runs across the Hakskeenpan desert in South Africa with pilot Andy Green behind the controls. They’ve since hit 461 mph.

Maria Constanza Ferreira created this short using screen grabs from Google Street View. By setting the perspective to a fixed view, it creates the illusion of an impossibly long road. As the film progresses, it uses digital manipulation to turn satellite images into abstract art.

First-person Scooter

First-person Scooter

Here in the US, our streets are filled with SUVs, pickups, and other larger than necessary vehicles. In many places around the globe, subcompacts and scooters are the norm. Here’s a POV look at the insanity of weaving through traffic in Hanoi, Vietnam on a Honda scooter.

Making Coffee

Making Coffee

Like everything he does, Buttered Side Down over-complicates even the most basic tasks. In this silly POV video, he attempts to make the world’s strongest cup of coffee after his mind starts playing tricks on him. Naturally, his brew makes him just that much more jittery.

Anna Meredith: Paramour

Anna Meredith: Paramour

Perhaps inspired by the LEGO railway work of BananenBuurman, filmmaker Ewan Jones Morris takes us on a thrilling one-shot, POV ride, engineered by LEGO expert builder Gary Davis. Anna Meredith’s engrossing instrumental track serves as the perfect accompaniment to the precision-timed train ride.

Drone Mountain Surfing

Drone Mountain Surfing

UAV flyer Mactac takes us on a beautiful and majestic ride through craggy rocks, tall trees, steep cliffs, and waterfalls in this buttery-smooth first-person flight. The nature sounds and soundtrack really help bring it all together. Original through-the-goggles recording here.

Underneath a Skateboard

Underneath a Skateboard

Pro skater Dean-Paul Denniston rigged a GoPro to the underside of hise skateboard, providing a unique perspective on his world, including a badass maneuver called a “kickflip backside lipslide.” We love how the noise the wheels make sounds like an engine.

Parkour vs. Hot Air Balloons

Parkour vs. Hot Air Balloons

The athletes of STORROR offer up one of the coolest parkour settings we’ve seen, as a team of acrobats run and jump among the rocky formations of Cappadocia, Turkey while numerous hot air balloons float in the distance and overhead. That bit in the ancient building was bonkers. Go behind the scenes of the journey here.

Demolition Drone Flight

Demolition Drone Flight

FPV drone fanatics Rotor Riot managed to score an amazing opportunity to fly – and then dive one of their drones right into the site of an old power plant as it was being imploded, thanks to the guys at Total Wrecking & Environmental. The resulting footage, while brief, is truly epic.

GoPro on a Turtle

GoPro on a Turtle

We’ve been on horseback, but we never thought we’d get to go on a turtleback ride. Thanks to YouTuber The Fish Whisperer, we can now see what it’s like to be a turtle, as this little fella heads off into the muddy water, and pops his head up for the occasional fishy snack.

Pulling a Rabbit out of a Hat

Pulling a Rabbit out of a Hat

Expect the unexpected when Buttered Side Down decides to try the classic rabbit out of a hat magic trick for himself. We can’t help but be reminded of the classic Rocky and Bullwinkle gag.

Mountain of Hell Winning Run

Mountain of Hell Winning Run

Check out this incredible point of view video captured by rider Kilian Bron, who managed to beat out more than 700 other bike riders on an unmarked 15.5 mile, 7800+ vertical foot downhill run in the 2019 Mountain of Hell competition in the French Alps. There was also quite the crash at the start of the race. (Thanks Matl!)

Vacuuming a Mess

Vacuuming a Mess

Buttered Side Down is always making such a mess of his place, it’s no wonder he needs a good vacuum cleaner. Witness the power of BSD’s very special Eureka upright as it makes quick work of the debris in his suckiest POV video yet.

Swatting a Fly

Swatting a Fly

There’s nothing quite as annoying as a house fly buzzing around – especially when there’s food involved. Buttered Side Down was making himself a sammidge when the pesky insect tried to make a move on his ham and pickles. Naturally, he attempted to exterminate the bugger, with limited success.
