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.

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!

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!!!!!!

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