Adventures in Idiocy | Ever Seen an Olympic Snowboarder Dropkick Someone in a Zorb?

Billy Morgan, Jamie Nicholls, Sam Murgatroyd, James Kingston and Joe Rackley go zorb mad

Have you ever wanted to see an Olympic snowboarder drop kick someone in a zorb?

If the answer is no, then we imagine you’ve never really considered the question before, so we’ll give you a few seconds to picture it in your head. Don’t worry, we’re patient. Take your time.


Assuming the answer is now yes, then today is your lucky day, because we have a new feature video which shows exactly that – Olympic snowboarder Billy Morgan drop kicking somebody who is inside a zorb.

It also shows, among other things, someone in a zorb run head first into a double decker bus in London. And someone going skateboarding in a zorb. And someone falling off a bicycle in a zorb. And – well, you get the point.

Introducing ‘Adventures in Idiocy’, an Mpora and Factory Media original production where we set professional idiot Joe Rackley loose on society.

Give a normal man a zorb and, if he’s feeling a little on the wild side, he might treat himself to a cheeky roll down a hill.

Give a professional idiot a zorb and he’ll round up Olympic snowboarders Billy Morgan and Jamie Nicholls, get in touch with pro skateboarder Sam Murgatroyd and James Kingston, one of the best parkour athletes in the world, and go more than a little bit nuts.

Billy Morgan and Jamie Nicholls might be in Pyeongchang in South Korea right now getting ready to compete in the biggest competition in global sport, but as far as we’re concerned the Olympics are a walk in the park compared to trying to ride Hemel Hempstead snow centre in a zorb. Of course being good at snowboarding and all, they do surprisingly well.

James Kingston and Sam Murgatroyd prove their credentials as well – though maybe the boldest part of Joe’s plan wasn’t getting the pros involved but taking the zorbs to the busy streets of London.

Check out the video above to catch Joe and the crew on as fierce a zorb-based rampage as you’re likely to ever see.
