If 2014 taught us anything about drones, it’s that flying robots and music don’t always mix well. Last year Cali punk band Trash Talk made headlines when their bassist threw a beer at a drone, sending it spiraling down into the crowd. Luckily no one was hurt but it served as a reminder that using a drone to film a show can be more of a risk than worthwhile.
Unfortunately Enrique Iglesias didn’t get the memo.
Over the weekend, Iglesias played a drone-filmed gig in Tijuana, Mexico. All was going well until the pop star reached out to grab it in attempt to take a selfie of himself. Iglesias accidentally grabbed one of the blades instead of the drone’s body and sliced his hand on stage. It was a bloody mess, as you can see by Iglesias’ splattered t-shirt. Pic shows quite a bit of blood, but you can see it here.
Iglesias soldiered on though, after having his hand temporarily bandaged up mid-set.
