    The helicopter is an Aerospatiale SA-315B Lama, Reg. No. F-BIFT.

    Is the location really Paris??

    It looks to me like that waterskier's out at sea.

    And at 00:58, the horse-rider's going along a beach!

    We see what you mean. Must have been on the original paperwork for some reason. Any ideas where this is?
