Watch an incredibly realistic CGI black swan fly in a wind tunnel

My brain struggles to believe that this black swan—featured in the new McLaren 570S commercial—is not a real animal but an awesome render. The video compares the aerodynamics of the swan and the car by putting the hyperrealistic CGI bird inside a wind tunnel.

Directors Dom & Nic said to Stash:

After researching the feasibility of shooting a real black swan it became clear the best way forward for this film was to create it entirely in CG [but] we wanted to approach it with the same mentality and process that we would do a live action shoot.
