Laurent Paris created this spectacular aerial video of Rio de Janeiro on New Years Eve of 2018. Most of the footage is of the city's beaches, some of the most well known in the world. Much of the video was shot around Copacabana Beach, a 2.5 km (about 1.5 mi.) curved arc of beach that has come to define Brazil's second largest (but best known) city. It also includes some epic shots of central Rio, and it ends with a fireworks show on the city's great waterfront.
