A Sherpa man who helped lead a team up Mount Everest as a part of an ASKfm cryptocurrency publicity stunt is presumed dead.
Game of Thrones isn’t one to shut away from gutsy stunts, whether it’s the epic horse skirmish in “Battle of the Bastards,” or that stupid thing where we all watched ice melt to find out when season seven was coming. But all of them pale in comparison to what may be considered GoT’s craziest stunt, which probably…
This is very probably one of the scariest places you can park your bum: at the very edge of a corner of a very tall building in downtown Toronto. To make it even worse, Oleg Cricket, the guy in the video, decided it would be a perfect time to start spinning around while he’s sitting too. I’ve never been so stressed…
I might have cried. I don’t know for sure because I’m unable to process emotion or feel my face after seeing these two guys, Ilya Bagaev and OlgaCricket, tease death by pulling tricks on the roof and even on the side of a 40-story building. I stopped the video multiple times because I just couldn’t take it anymore.
Kentucky Fried Chicken in Germany just cooked up the weirdest fast-food techno-marketing stunt. For a week, restaurants lined their serving trays with disposable Bluetooth keyboards instead of paper liners. Not even joking.
Jaguar unveiled their new car model to the world—the #NewXF—making it cross the Thames river, in London, over a two-inch-wide (34 mm) and 787-foot-long (240 meters) high-wire. The car made it successfully to the other side establishing a insane but, nonetheless, extraordinary new world record.
It's not as impressive as lifting a house into the air, but daredevil Erik Roner had a miniature Up moment when he was lifted 8,000 feet into the air with the help of 50 tanks of helium and 90 enormous balloons.
I have to give kudos to Airbus for having the guts to do this using five test A350-900 XWB airplanes, its newest wide-body airliner. I know the stunt was well calculated and the pilots—all of them ex-military aviators—knew exactly what they were doing, but the entire thing still looks insane.
We have seen Tom Cruise doing some crazy stunts in the past, but this must be the craziest yet. The 52-year-old actor—who is shooting Mission Impossible—held to the door of an Airbus A400M Atlas military transport as it took off and flew at 5,000 feet above the British countryside.
This guy's name is Adam Delorme, although I will just go ahead and call him Darth Delorme. Or His Wizardness Lord Delorme of Snow. He can go by either name. Like the rest of the skiers in the documentary Less, his skiing seems more like an act of magic than actual skiing. At one point I thought it was all CGI.
These guys are Nick McClintock and the Xpogo crew. Franly, I don't know who Nick McClintock and the Xpogo crew are or how the hell did they think about using pogos to perform their acrobatic jumps, but watching their first-person videos is making me dizzy.
When man created GoPro cameras, this is what he intended them to be used for. This video shows the amazing Black Diamond Jet Team in training—and if you're scared of flying, it might be best not to watch it.
Yes, the megaphone was attached to a podium that said "Say Something Nice", but you half expect some New York jackass to hijack the megaphone and curse everybody out (maybe it was edited out!). But seriously, watching this will brighten up your Monday.
If Spider-Man: The Musical taught us anything, it's that you can never have too many airbags on hand. For their new Vegas show, Cirque du Soleil is using the largest one of its kind.
As far as publicity stunts go, this is pretty great: a giganto-sized orange Hot Wheels set. And unlike the ones you played with as a tyke, the car didn't go crashing into a wall, but broke a distance world record.
File this under supercool things your mother would not want to see you do: road bike purveyor NeilPryde had one of its people cruise down a parking ramp on their new Diablo cycle. Oh, and its wheels were on fire.
How wide is the hallway in this heavy machine factory outside of Edmonton, Alberta? Wide as two crazy men, according to this shot, sent by one of the show-offs. Two words, Ryan: Workers' Comp.
