Watching The Filming Of A Car Chase Scene Is Way More Fun Than Watching The Actual Movie

Video: Am I going to watch that new Bourne movie? I don’t know, probably not. Are you? You probably don’t need to, because the coolest part of the movie isn’t actually in the movie — it’s this behind the scenes footage showing the filming of a car chase. The B-roll footage shows how the arm of the chase car camera swings around and swivels, tailing the car perfectly so that it can get all the right angles.


Absurdly Fast Human Catapult Goes From 0 To 200km/h In One Second

Video: Dubai is equal parts engineering marvel and rich person playground. It’s where drones race pricey supercars and skateboarders rent out and drain entire waterparks for their amusement. It’s also where BASE jumpers Chris Douggs McDougall and Jimmy Pouchert shot themselves 100m into the air just for the hell of it.


Plane Flies Under A Biker Doing A Backflip And A Guy Walking On A Tight Rope

Video: Which one of these crazy people would you rather be? The person making a low pass on a stunt plane knowing if you fly any higher you’re definitely going to end up in prison? The dude doing a backflip on a motorcycle while jumping over that stunt plane? Or the totally exposed lunatic walking on a tight rope as the plane passes underneath him and the biker flips right next to him?


Google Wants You To Use Its Apps To Get Out Of This Nightmare Escape Room

In what appears to be a valiant effort to turn the show Black Mirror into reality, Google France has created an escape room in which participants must use Google apps to get out.


The World's Longest Rail Slide On Skis Feels Like It Goes On Forever

Video: With a GoPro camera strapped to his chest providing a first-person view of the stunt, skier Tom Wallisch shattered the previous rail sliding record of 73.46m with this epic 129.24m long run that saw him fighting to maintain balance on a pair of skis while sliding along at 58km per hour.


Watch Fearless Stuntman Do A Blind Backflip Over A Speeding Race Car

Video: Besides a bit of YouTube fame, it’s hard to say why stuntman Damien Walters challenged himself to perform a daring backflip over a speeding Formula E race car — which he couldn’t actually see coming. It’s a stunt more impressive than anything you’ll see in a Hollywood movie because there are no wires, and no computer graphics.


These Crazy Jet Ski Tricks Seem To Defy Gravity

Video: Gravity doesn’t really apply to world champion jet skier Eli Kemnitz when he’s on one of those floating rockets. Just watch him freestyle and bust out an array of jumping tricks on flat water. You get to see see it a little bit from his perspective but the really wild part is just watching him spin and then bounce, spin and then bounce, and spin and then bounce like the water is a freaking trampoline.


Crazy Aeroplane Flies In And Out And Through A Wind Farm

Video: You know those basketball and soccer dribbling drills where you snake through a line of cones, dribbling a ball as you weave through them? That’s what pilot Hannes Arch is doing in this aeroplane at a wind farm in Tauern Wind Park in Oberzeiring, Austria. The aeroplane just flies through the wind turbines over and over again like it’s a video game and not real life.


Man In Wingsuit Flies Through A Narrow Opening Between Two Antennas

Video: And the kick is good! I always think of a field goal in football whenever something splits the uprights of two standing posts. Only in this instance, it’s not a football and a goalpost but a human being in a wingsuit flying through the narrow opening of two antennas.


These Stunt Tricks On A Moped Are Totally Wild

Video: I don’t know what sort of negotiations this person made with gravity, the magnets of Earth and the ground, because he came away with a freaking steal. The balance it takes to pull off all these crazy tricks on a moped and the creativity it takes to imagine them are just from another world. I mean, how does a person even realise that they could do this? Who sees a scooter and thinks “hey, can I stand on the handlebar while popping a wheelie? Or better yet, I’ll just ride the handlebar as I spin around?”
