It's pretty hard to appreciate just how blazingly fast top-tier marathon runners are going- for 26.2 miles. So this video ad for the NYC Marathon let you attempt a marathon pace for just 60 feet. 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, 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]
