Kyle Gough posted on LiveLeak a few days ago the video of a close to life-size radio-controlled Superman being launched on a beach off of California’s Pacific Coast Highway. The footage has since gone viral and reveals just how much people really want to see Superman take to the skies.
Here’s what Gough wrote of what he saw:
I was cycling with my buddy down PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) and during our casual conversation … Superman flew by. We stopped, got off our bikes just in time to watch him land.
