For this commercial for Britvic's Robinsons Squash'd, Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron and Framestore got a chance to shoot in zero gravity for real. Filming took place on a specially modified plane known as the 'vomit comet', which conducts parabolic flights that give its passengers 15 seconds of weightlessness. A crew of eight were tasked with filming a water balloon containing the drink being burst with a pin, resulting in the water droplets floating through the air, ready to be haphazardly sucked up by two passengers through a straw.
