After Amazon announced that it would be taking to the skies to deliver parcels via drones, there were reactions of delight, paranoia, and a myriad of emotions in-between. Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos (or a parody form of him at least) has taken to YouTube to apologize for causing concern and to outline the steps that Amazon will take to make the sight and sound of drones seem more natural.

YouTube user Dartanion London posted this comedy video where he promises the swarm of robot helicopters will, among other things, be dressed as bees so their buzzing will sound more natural.

Amazon Prime Air is more than just a bunch of small helicopters though, as he explains in the video. At the same time, we can't help but feel a little uneasy at the prospect of giant bees, or of his nephew taking over the business at some point in the future. But thankfully, there is an opt-out clause.
