You can see everything in gory detail from 1 mile away.
From . to \ . /

So cool.

Are these videos over-stylized with quick cuts and washed out colors as a tribute to the filmmaker?
 
2012-08-21 09:18:50 AM  
How dare people with VIDEO want to SELL it to a newspaper. What do they think this IS, the 1970s?
 
2012-08-21 09:29:53 AM  
Sorry, but there's $$$ to be made.
 
2012-08-21 09:50:45 AM  
Damn, I thought the headline was saying the videos were being photoshopped/using video manipulation. Like it shows Tony, then cuts to Cruise in Top Gun screaming "GOOOOOOOOOSEEEEE!!!" Then he jumps.
 
2012-08-21 10:18:30 AM  
I think Tony Scott would want his last moments filmed.

Although probably by the B-roll guy, who was usually more talented than him.
 
2012-08-21 10:19:29 AM  
Diveway through the Danger Zone. He took a dive right in the Danger Zoooooooooooone!
 
2012-08-21 10:19:43 AM  
I just bought a version that has him growing wings and flying up to meet Little Baby Jebus ...

If I had such a video and could get enough to pay off my parents' mortgage? You bet your ass I'd sell it.

If the man wanted privacy, he would have the common decency to just dump his head into a vat of cocaine in some Vegas hotel room

Tony Scott's fatal leap off an L.A. bridge was captured on tape

Multiple people reached for their cell phone cameras


That reminds me. I have to buy a couple more tapes for my iphone.

Same here. TFA was a letdown after getting my hopes up for a second.
 
2012-08-21 10:23:31 AM  
What? They should sell to the lowest price?

/subby sounds poor
 
2012-08-21 10:23:51 AM  
the last few celebrity stories have been weird. I am thinking of the massive coverage Kirsten Stewarts cheating on Pattinson thing got, it was so over the top odd. and now whether this guy had cancer or not or whatever is turning into a big story. who gives a shiat. he jumped off a farking bridge, I see stories that the autopsy will take awhile. HE JUMPED OFF A farkING BRIDGE. THERES YOUR AUTOPSY
 
2012-08-21 10:24:53 AM  
Is there a Director's cut? A bonus DVD with commentary, outtakes and deleted scenes?
 
2012-08-21 10:25:08 AM  
TMZ is just bitter because someone asked more for the "going price."
 
2012-08-21 10:26:04 AM  
Once again,the warmth and compassion of this country is on full display....
 
2012-08-21 10:26:37 AM  
Amusing that TMZ felt the need to point out they didnt buy the video and pat themselves on the back. The same site published pictures of dead Anna Nicole Smith, Michael Jackson and the bathtub Whitney Houston died in.

TMZ has no honor, the seller just wanted too much money probably
 
2012-08-21 10:27:37 AM  
In L.A. if you have the dirt, someone will buy it.
 
2012-08-21 10:27:41 AM  
So instead of trying to talk the guy out of jumping or calling 911, bystanders starting taking photos and video. Jah, classy.
 
2012-08-21 10:27:54 AM  
Is there a non ghoulish way to try to make big bucks off of a video of a man killing himself?

But knowing that he died from jumping off a bridge tells us nothing about how remarkable his anus was.

And all you'd have to do is live with your status as a societal bottomfeeder! You're golden!

D_Moran: So instead of trying to talk the guy out of jumping or calling 911, bystanders starting taking photos and video. Jah, classy.


By all accounts, he got out of the car, climbed the 8-10 foot fence and jumped off; no waiting to decide if he really wanted to do it.
 
2012-08-21 10:30:53 AM  
Crash and burn, eh Maverick?
 
2012-08-21 10:31:29 AM  

consider this: It's already been leaked.

slightly disturbing


Damn you.

Beautiful.
 
2012-08-21 10:31:58 AM  
People should have a reasonable expectation of privacy while base jumping? lol

Those fences are a waste of money. The determined are unstoppable.

You sick fark.
 
2012-08-21 10:35:16 AM  
I want to know if he was standing ready to jump for a while before he did it so I can confirm my "idiot with cameraphone would rather film you dying than call for help" theory
also the video is probably shot portrait
 
2012-08-21 10:38:11 AM  
more public suicides, I say.

always entertaining

10 points for Gryffindor.
 
2012-08-21 10:38:26 AM  
Yeah people, show some class to someone who decided to make a public spectacle of themselves before taking the chicken way out in public and possibly traumatizing bystanders in one last fatal attention whore moment that caused taxpayer resources to be wasted...
 
2012-08-21 10:38:43 AM  
Because those dipshiats are gonna buy it, if it's good enough.

And they're gonna lead off with a story about having the vapors over it.

Bears repeating?
 
2012-08-21 10:40:27 AM  
I'm with the guy above, if I can sell the video and pay off my mortgage(my parents already paid there's off), I'm going to do so. If I can squeeze a Limited WRX STI out of it, I'd do that too.

holy shiat wtf. I meant "their's"
 
2012-08-21 10:43:06 AM  
TMZ has learned the shots are being vigorously shopped around

Oh, they "learned" that, did they? Did it involve lots of inductive reasoning, maybe hours of painstaking trial-and-error experimenting on various hypotheses?

Well he may have, he just did his waiting to decide prior to arriving at the fence.

Blue Water Bridge gets a few jumpers a year, some of them live

2012-08-21 10:45:54 AM  
if you try to sell TMZ something, and they take the high road on it, you should pretty much know you are the worst kind of person.
 
2012-08-21 10:46:27 AM  
why did tony scott jump?

the need, the need for speed 

what highway was the bridge on?

highway to the danger zone


/too soon?

Multiple people reached for their cell phone cameras when they noticed a man climbing over a fence on the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro in the middle of the day


It doesn't bug me that someone tried to sell the video, what bothers me is that "multiple people" saw someone in pain and did nothing but think of themselves.And I'm sure it doesn't just happen in the USA. I really hope there is another world war soon, this world's population needs "downsizing".
