I'll give him $20 if he does it again.

Crazy Russians...what do they have to lose?
 
2012-04-25 01:00:26 AM  
From seconds 8-12 I was like; this is a joke.

Then I was like, damn.

Is Parkour really popular in Russia or something? I feel like every crazy vid I see like this is in Russia.

Did he lose a shoe?

You, sir, win an internet.

Dairy King: Did he lose a shoe?


Lost a shoe or did a bit of damage on the landing. Even though he ran around for a few seconds, his stride appeared to be distorted. Guess he might not have broken anything but he looks to have felt something in the line of pain.

It looked like no one, including him, expected him to succeed. Anyway, a tip of the hat to him for not letting the fear of death limit his enjoyment of life. Death is nothing to us.

how do you jump that height without breaking something? Is it like a cat, the rotation slows you down?


I'm thinking maybe that wasn't a russian, perhaps an alien? Call the MIB!

Could someone explain the physics? Why aren't his ankles broken?


Or is it PCP?

He landed in really, really soft, uncompacted dirt. That ground looked solid until he landed and made a small crater.

I had the music from Tetris in my head during that.

How do you practice for something like that?
 
2012-04-25 09:13:49 AM  
Better luck next time, Darwin.

..and the roll. I've seen similar jumps made onto grass. It's all on the roll to keep the momentum of the fall from going straight down into your ankles.

♫Head shoulders♫... ow goddamnit my knees and toes!
 
2012-04-25 12:41:37 PM  
wow, Darwin comments. Who would have thought?
 
2012-04-25 01:10:15 PM  
The only impressive thing about this video is that he didn't seriously injure himself. The entire video, all I could hear in my head was Michael Scott saying, "ParkourParkour!"

Crewmannumber6: Better luck next time, Darwin.


I'm pretty sure there'll be a follow up video of him doing something similar but ending up with several broken bones.

I wonder how many kids will die or end up paralyzed trying to duplicate this stunt?

darwin-online.org.uk

Approves of this recruitment effort.
 
2012-04-25 03:01:59 PM  
It is sad... but he will probably be paralyzed (or dead) soon.

Awesome jump though!
 
2012-04-25 05:36:44 PM  
Was it just me, or did that whole video seem faked? There was weird frame skipping just on the running guy and unnecessary camera moving, tilting and zooming.

I call BS.

I heard Frogger.

Crazy Ivan!

Did the guy holding the camera have it on a jib or something?

And he's very thin and tall. Low weight and a long spring to absorb the energy.

I kept waiting for Tony P's gifs to sync up.

Are there any French-speaking people in the thread?

I could swear the guy at the end says "fark" in French when he runs around and does a front flip.

He's definitely not saying "putain," if that's what you were thinking of.
 
2012-04-25 09:46:07 PM  
shopped? my only evidence is that he should have broken legs
 
2012-04-25 10:32:25 PM  
It's only a matter of time.

No, after the flip he says 'Mudak'. He called him a fool/idiot. Although it sounds as if he said it with impressed disbelief.
