Man Pierces His Back to Hook His Body onto a Hot Air Balloon

I'm totally cool with alternative piercings. Your life, your choices, whatever. But Zane Whitmore is testing my limit of accepting crazy: he pierced his back, attached the piercings to a hot air balloon and suspended his body in the air.

Pain and grossness aside, what Whitmore did probably makes it feel like you're really flying since you don't really feel any gear on you. But still, my stomach is turning from just watching the video. The guy is literally hanging there, what was the backup plan!?

The people behind the stunt filmed it for a documentary called Feet Off the Ground and said it took 2 years to plan. I'm guessing most of the 2 years was spent finding someone crazy/daring enough to do it. [KATU via BoingBoing]
