Jeff Myers has created quite a stir with his video showing a dog being walked by a drone.

That’s right, a drone.

In the minute-long clip titled “Walking Dogs With Drones” that was posted to Vimeo May 13, the dog — a golden retriever — can be seen being attached to the leash, which is itself attached to the drone.

The dog appears to be unfazed as it walks down the street while being led by the drone, although a few passersby in the neighborhood do curious double-takes. Back inside the home, the dog’s position is being tracked on a map on a computer screen.

Chill music plays throughout the clip.

Myers told “Good Morning America” that the drone was just a prototype.
