Those around the River Liffey in Dublin yesterday got a pleasant surprise as a man with a jetpack went for a short jaunt through the air.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a man flying through the air with a jetpack strapped to his back! That’s one way to beat Dublin’s traffic anyways.

JetPackMan, known to his friends and family as Nick Macomber, took to the sky over Dublin City yesterday afternoon with a jetpack strapped to his back. A few videos have popped up online, making everyone very envious of his day-to-day life.

He flew along the River Liffey before settling down on a platform branded to promote the Samsung Galaxy S7. Macomber gave those in attendance at the Galaxy S7 launch event a sneak preview of the stunt appearing over the stage in the RDS.

While in Ireland, Macomber has been recording some videos to give people a new perspective on some of the country’s landmarks. We can’t wait to see some of them from the sky.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 will be available in Ireland from Friday, March 11th.
