The Smithsonian Channel has released a video excerpt showing Africanized 'killer bees' attacking a film crew (which had carefully prepared itself for the onslaught). Yahoo Tech reports:
First, the crew members prepare for the shoot by covering as much of their bodies as possible, for obvious reasons. They also put on very bright colored, protective suits because killer bees like to target dark parts of the body such as eyes, ears and the mouth, according to the video.
Once they disturb the hive, a swarm of bees immediately starts pouring out and attacking the crew. You can see the bees pounding the darker part of their suits, such as their masks, and even hear some of them make contact with the mask. The filmmakers also run a stick covered in black felt across the hive so you can see the angry bees pouncing on it. Try not to imagine any part of your body in place of the stick.

Here's the video. Watch it in full-screen mode for maximum impact - particularly the slow-motion scenes at the end.
I'd rather not be there while they're filming. Just sayin' . . .
