A video taking viewers on a drone tour of Minnesota is proving a huge hit on social media.

It's the work of Tyler Mason, a certified drone pilot, photographer and digital media director, who shared it to his Twitter page on Tuesday.

Since then, it has racked up more than 70,000 views and garnered hundreds of retweets.

The video depicts some of Minnesota's most famous landmarks, from the neon signs, sports stadia and skyscrapers of the Twin Cities, to the Aerial Lift Bridge in Duluth, the Jolly Green Giant Statue in Blue Earth, the St. Croix at Stillwater, and the woods and lakes of northern Minnesota.

The accompanying soundtrack meanwhile is the work of Minnesota's own Atmosphere.
