You're Nuts: First Person 'Mirror's Edge' Parkour Run

mirrors-edge-parkour.jpg

In honor of Electronic Arts' announcement of a second Mirror's Edge video game, parkour and freerunning production house(?) Ampisound made this first-person Mirror's Edge themed run along the roofs of a bunch of buildings. It was scary. When it comes to parkour, this is really how you separate the men from the boys -- the risk of falling four stories and dying. I suppose you could also ask to see who has underarm hair, but then you'd just sound like a pervert. I collect happy trails!

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Nathan, FD, masher and Nosuchthing, who don't always jump off of buildings, but when they do they're using garbage bags as parachutes.

There are Comments.

    That's insane, and a pretty good lookalike. Time to go play Mirror's Edge.

  • Matthew Anderson

    That soundtrack is EPIC!

  • RDarker

    I woulda died at 0:20. Oops slipped on bird shit.

  • Rick_McRockock

    Again with the fisheye lens... It makes everything look sooo much farther down. At the one minute mark his legs look like they're 2 stories below his arms. Not that this isn't crazy but that effect annoys me.

  • Noneya Biznazz

    2:13 a spider web so big it caught a bird?

  • Shawn Bibby

    wow just wow!

  • TempUserName4

    I think I might be calling shenanigans here. At 1:02 you can see a blue outline around his right arm. Not sure if this is simply a video artifact, or something more diabolical...

  • Jacques-André Langelier

    holyshit you're right. totally looks like a blue screen

  • WhiteEagle2

    This video gave me vertigo. Thanks Obama.

  • Aniroc

    Very impressive, but I couldn't stop thinking about wanting to pull his pants up.. or are they penguin pants? Either way, I'd feel like they're getting in the way.

  • Stevedave

    Dude has way too much faith in old masonry.

  • Mason Miller

    Especially if you are a robot. They make all the cash. Debra is probably a robot too.

  • Michael Jones

    Debra's a saint!

  • catallergy

    I felt sick to my stomach just watching that video. ugh.

  • Eric Stodolnik

    I wonder if he shaved his arms too look more feminine

  • Jacques-André Langelier

    In real life a girl could never do that. Unless she had a big pair of balls

  • Jacques-André Langelier

    That was a wordplay with balls guys. please tell angry feminists to stay away of geekologie if they can't take satire
