Watch Muse's Giant Inflatable Drone Crash Into Crowd at London Show

You'd think a band that named their latest album Drones would be total pros when it comes to operating that kind of machinery by now, but that's not how things went down last night in London Town.

Last night, Muse were playing the third gig of their four-night residency at the O2 Arena, a fitting celebration in the wake of Drones' release, which netted them both their first No. 1 album and a Best Rock Album GRAMMY at the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Given the cavernous nature of the O2 arena, the giant, inflatable drone made its appearance in the set, and had plenty of room to fly about during the show. Halfway through "The Globalist," the aircraft started to lose steam—or air, really—and sunk into the crowd. Thankfully, there are no reported injuries, but it made for one hell of a spectacle.

Watch clips from Muse's show last night below, and if you happen to be across the pond this summer, try to catch one of their shows as they're set to tour Europe through the end of August. Just keep your eyes peeled for any huge inflatable drones taking a digger.
