Awesomeness On Youtube ~ A Little Parkour Never Hurt Anyone

Don't know if you've seem this clip that runs at about 5 minutes or so, but it is a compilation of some of the coolest stuff captured on video and uploaded to YouTube.

Actually it took me a bit longer than 5 minutes to watch because I had to stop and backtrack what the heck I just saw. Don't try this at home kids.

Usually what people think of when they see this type of video is all the lame stunts gone wrong where buddy on a skateboard lands on a pole or crashes into a wall or some other cringworthy scene. This one contains all the stuff that goes right. There's some tasty parkour (sort of travelling our urban world in unexpected ways), great basketball shots, skiing, jumping, leaping and just jaw-dropping visuals.

As mentioned, usually what you see is some kind of America's Funniest Home Videos where little Billy hits uncle George in the nether regions and the studio audience yuks it up, but seeing this sort of video, where it works is way cooler.

Did you see the one part where the guy actually ran across water? I watched a longer version of that somewhere on YouTube but can't remember where and that is legit. The human species is capable of so much more than you can imagine and this is just a glimpse of people stretching the envelope.

But like I said kids - Don't Try This At Home - this people have tried and failed on numerous occasions, ramping up their efforts until they reached awesomeness.
