Riddle me this, what do all skydiving-enthusiasts and movie-buffs have in common? Answer: they all love, more than they love having fingers, that scene in Point Break where Keanu Reeves jump out of a moving plane without a parachute. If you’ve never seen it, it’s one of the greatest moments not just in cinematic history but in human history generally.
So, why exactly are we talking about Keanu Reeves? What’s brought on all this film nostalgia? Antti Pendikainen, over to you. Antti Pendikainen, you see, has jumped off a hot air balloon…without a parachute. Just take a moment to breathe in the sheer madness of that sentence you’ve read. Take a moment to breathe it in, reflect on it, and then watch this video of it happening. It’s the definition of insanity.
