Flying Bathtub

Sure, the Volocopter is a cool concept, but I want my FLYING SHOPPING on our HUMAN DRONE! | Flying Bathtub #4. It's unclear how much of this is real, the tag at the end says:

Bitte nicht zu ernst nehmen, dieses Video ist als Sketch zu sehen und muss nicht dem realen Flug entsprechen. ...


Please do not take this too seriously, this video is to be seen as a sketch and does not have to correspond to the real flight.

But their Instagram of an interior flight suggests that though there was some editing to tell the story, they do have a flying bathtub n-copter that carries a human.

Edit: Build video, with some video from a previous less stable incarnation.

Reading their comment on this makes me believe they did go to the bakery in their contraption, maybe not exactly as portrayed in the video, though.

Yeah, my take from trying to read their German is that they edited a bunch of the flying shots together to make it into a story, but that it wasn't necessarily a continuous flight, nor was the person shown getting into and out of the bathtub always the pilot.
