Hotelicopter – Meet The Flying Hotel!
Is it a helicopter? Is it a hotelicopter no its April fools day!
Most of you will probably all ready know the story, its a Russian-made Mil V-12 edited to look like a flying hotel.
The video went viral in 2009 as an April fools joke which apparently fooled 100′s of thousands of people
The mastermind who created this madness called himself “Alvin Farley” and boasted the hotel with wings had 18 luxury rooms and traveled at 158mph!
It came to light that the bedroom pictures where lifted from airport hotel chain Yotel’s website, Furthermore only two Mil V-12s were ever built!
People say Yotel where in on the whole thing as an advertising campaign but they beg to differ and are just happy with the free traffic! What are your thoughts?
