I Desperately Want This Video To Be Fake

This video shows Oli Lemieux practicing on the trampoline wall of Cirque du Soleil and I've watched it twice already. I keep searching for clues that it's just a cleverly edited video, that someone couldn't possibly really do these stunts.

Despite all the discussion of what the human body can be pushed to do, I feel feel a sense of disbelief watching Oli jumping around. I know that he's a talented man and that this clip is almost certainly not edited in ways that enhance the stunts. But a part of me desperately wants the video to be fake, because, despite the many years of practice it must've taken him to make everything look easy, Oli has forced me to realize my own personal limitations.

Many angles, lots of repeats, no fake... sorry, you're just inadequate, like the rest of us.

I was blown away by the video though, excellent post! #olilemieuxtrampoline
