A video clip purporting to show delivery drones emerging from a giant blimp with the Amazon logo on it has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times in online posts with captions such as: “A step closer to the dystopian world I crave”. The video is actually computer-generated and was created by a Japanese artist as an April Fool’s joke. While some commenters on the posts acknowledged the video was not real, many appeared to believe that it was.
