These Star Wars Parkour Guys Are Probably Real Life Jedis

If you dress up like a Jedi on a day that's not October 31st (even if it is October 31st, actually), you're probably going to be branded a geek. Wear that proudly! But if you dress up like a Jedi and do parkour tricks in the freaking desert like bouncing off rocks and double backflips and triple spins all while looking … » 7/31/13 9:30pm 7/31/13 9:30pm
