Parkour is the contemporary art of performing acrobatic tricks using nothing more than the ledges, rails and surfaces of one’s urban surroundings and, I guess, a good pair of loafers to boot. The practice of parkour has really been around for a while.
But how do you take parkour to the next level? Two Russion daredevils Ilya Bagaev and “OlegCricket” attempt to pull this off by doing parkour-like tricks... on top of a building 40 floors high.
Watch the amazing video below. Be warned though, it might make you feel queasy.
I’m not particularly afraid of heights but at one point I had to force myself not to look away while watching the video. Their hobby makes Tom Cruise’s crazy stuntwork look easy.
