It's pretty hard to appreciate just how blazingly fast top-tier marathon runners are going for 42km. So this video ad for the NYC Marathon lets you attempt a marathon pace for just 18m. Nobody could do it.
The video wall features Olympian Ryan Hall, who with a mile pace of 4:46 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and a stride length of 6 feet 10 inches (2m), is probably some sort of cyborg Darpa project and not an actual human. Now we just need video walls to demonstrate how much stronger, smarter, funnier and better-looking other singular humans are. Thank you for both shattering our self-esteem and leaving us in awe of the human species. [Reddit]
