Sure it looks like fun (beginning about 1:50 in), but I would probably erase the tape afterwards, not post it on youtube!?

There is a whole list of dangerous and STUPID in that one.

Publicly posting a video....

I'm not familiar with the area, but why not go a little higher and look around? Is there a route to where you're going that doesn't require you to overfly a cloud deck?

If you have to fly that exact leg, why not do it higher (than 4100' over a 3000' mountainous pass) so you can clearly see across the deck. If you had to do so, you could pick and reach a forced landing area.

Do not fly up the middle of a valley. You half the space to turn around.

Do not approach a ridge or weather on a perpendicular. Approach on as shallow an angle as possible with your turn to abort clear of obstacles.

Just a pilot (retired, so I have a LOT of time)...

Butters if you were in the passenger seat in the back what would you have said to those guys?  Would you have screamed and cussed them out?  Or would you have hijacked the helicopter at that point?

"Hey guys, do you have any more barf bags up there, I've filled up all the ones back here."

Always seems like these r44 videos have a guy wearing really cool gloves while flying close to clouds. Remember a while back 'special vfr' video

Don't the gloves and the cool aviator sunglasses make the pilot? ;)
