Fascinating. Water-repellent shoes and the right technique seem to go a long way!

Sorry, but it's a fake.

It's a viral ad for the clothing company and they're actually running on a clear platform just under the water.

I was going to say, didn't I see David Blaine or Criss Angel doing this? If they did have some sort of shoe that could do this, they would still drop a little with each step instead of keeping level then falling.

Yeah, you can see the plexiglass ramp at some places in the video.

Ourcrazymodern? 05-19-2010 02:24 PM

Besides all that, they weren't walking.

I love that this is shot in the exact same style as every EXTREME SPORT documentary I've ever seen...snowboarding, wakeboarding, skateboarding, dirtbike, mountain bike, stunt bike...all the same. Good times, well done!

Lasereth 05-19-2010 06:40 PM

It's a very well done video but it still surprises me how many people fall for this video. I'd almost call it a satire. It's shot in such a way that mocks extreme sport documentaries like telekinetic said. It's good stuff!!!!!!

i feel like i joined a bad religion and got duped.


damn you Heavens Gate!

SecretMethod70 05-19-2010 07:54 PM

Nooooooooooooooooooo. I watched it with sound off, maybe that contributed to me missing the fake-ness of it all :(

Fire 05-19-2010 09:38 PM

given what I have seen some parkour practitioners do, I give it 18 months till someone does do this for real

allmostred 05-21-2010 05:47 AM

totally fake, cannot be done. Not even Jesus did it

dlish 05-21-2010 07:41 AM

ive seen pink flamingo's do it.

If they can, why cant jesus?

raging moderate 05-21-2010 06:32 PM

what about those little bugs that do it? or those really fast-running lizards? maybe we just need to run faster

dlish 05-21-2010 07:10 PM

..or grow wings

if we can somehow get some uplift and work against the laws of gravity, we'll have this fixed in no time.

Worst case, I at least expect a plethora of videos of people trying and failing.

genuinegirly 05-22-2010 03:36 PM
