You can tell it's not real - the blades are going round the wrong way!

Given the blades are rotating backwards I was thinking Australia because it's down under. Hat and coat heading for the door

The guy on the rotor head I can take or leave, but the closing shot of the cyclic variation in angle of attack and resultant flex of the blade serves yet again to demonstrate the folly of aviating in something where the airspeed of the wing can alternately significantly exceed, or be inferior to, that of the accompanying fuselage, especially if said wing has a high aspect ratio.
