British gymnast Damien Walters is pretty crazy, and he’s made a damn fine living out of just that fact.
The Hollywood stuntman has been behind the scenes in the likes of Skyfall, Kingsman, Sherlock Holmes, Captain America and Kick-Ass, but he insists his latest stunt, the first ever hold and release bungee jump, is “one of the most scary things I’ve done.”
Now, there’s no doubt that this video is cool, but be prepared for a bit – a freakin’ shitload – of overhyping in the build up and aftermath of the clip itself. There’s enough slow-mo in this feature to make even John Woo cringe, and it probably would’ve made for a better watch had he just uploaded the raw footage.
Nevertheless, this is ballsy as hell from Mr. Walters. A bungee jump while not strapped in to any protective gear? We think we’ll give it a miss for now.
