Ever since I saw the opening sequence of Casino Royale, I’ve been oddly fascinated by parkour. Not that I could ever pull off much of what the “art” consists of, but nevertheless, I’m awfully impressed by those that do. In the following videos, we have two examples, one demonstrating the correct way to “do” parkour. The other one? Not so much.
First, the correct way. It’s is a little long but it’s worth the watch, even if the editor went a little overboard with the effects.
This next one — or the incorrect way — is a much shorter but it does a great job of demonstrating why those of us lacking the requisite parkour skill should probably leave well enough alone.
Broken ribs, anyone?
