An Oddly Upbeat Aerial Tour Of That Creepy Abandoned Island From Skyfall

Remember that utterly depressing abandoned factory island that Javier Bardem's character used as his headquarters in Skyfall? It's actually a real place known as Hashima — or Battleship island — that was built and used as a coal mining facility until it was abandoned in 1974.

It's kind of a sad tale, so it's a little confusing as to why Sony chose such an upbeat and whimsical soundtrack for this tour of the island using one of its action cams attached to a quadcopter. Maybe they have plans to turn it into a family-friendly resort? [YouTube via The Awesomer]
