So, we’ve seen some amazing light shows, but this one really takes la tarta. The giant skull wearing a sombrero during the Day of the Dead celebrations is really spectacular. If only this drone light show was real…
Anyone spotting this giant skull floating above Mexico city early this month would not only be fortunate, they’d have to have eaten the right type of mushrooms. The image has been circulating around the internet for at least a year. But it’s had new traction since the November 1 celebrations. The picture has been retweeted more than 38,000 times.
However, it’s not a light show. They’re not drones. It’s not even Mexico.
Snopes spotted it as a work of digital art, as physical as the page you’re reading. Yes, the drone lights aren’t quite distinct. (You can tell by the pixels.) And it does appear a little too gargantuan, even for a Mexican sky. And yes, that’s Mount Fuji in the background.
