Awesome Stunts

Filling a House with Water

Filling a House with Water

Finding water inside your house is one of the last things you want to experience as a homeowner. YouTuber President Chay has the opposite mindset – at least if he can live in this watertight house that he and his buddies built. It took some serious trial and error, but he was ultimately able to go for an indoor dive.

Jackass Forever (Trailer 2)

Jackass Forever (Trailer 2)

Because we can never get enough idiotic and dangerous stunts, Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Wee Man, and a whole bunch of friends got together to deliver one final round of stupidity for our enjoyment. We’re happy to see that Bad Grandpa makes an appearance too. In theaters 2.4.2022.

Ski Jump without Snow

Ski Jump without Snow

Zooming down a ski jump under normal conditions requires a certain amount of courage, but doing it when there’s no snow on it at all looks downright terrifying. That’s precisely what skier Christian Høgfeldt did a few years back, as he placed his skis into the tracks of a bare ski jump, headed downhill, and landed safely at the bottom.

AMPD 2

AMPD 2

Baja 1000 champ Alan Ampudia is back with a sequel to his epic trophy truck stunt film AMPD. This time, he drove through Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to catch some crazy air, kick up lots of dirt, and show off sponsor Toyo Tires’ rugged Open Country A/T III tires.

The Super Bob Einstein Movie (Trailer)

The Super Bob Einstein Movie (Trailer)

Bob Einstein was best known as the absurdist stuntman Super Dave Osborne and as Marty Funkhouser on Curb Your Enthusiasm, but he also made a big impression on some of the world’s greatest comedians. This documentary celebrates Einstein’s life, as told by those who knew him best. Premieres 12.28.21 on HBO.

Fire Breathing Staircase Trick

Fire Breathing Staircase Trick

Fire breathing is usually a solo endeavor, but not for these guys who turned it into a team activity. Derrick Vermin and his pals pulled off this amazing trick known as the Ascending Dragon, passing fire from one daredevil to another and climbing from the ground floor to the roof of a building.

On the Handlebars

On the Handlebars

Freestyle BMX rider Mike “Hucker” Clark shows off his balance by riding around a skate park standing on a bike’s handlebars. Redditor Bengcord3 provided the perfect description for the video: “I’ve never seen someone so talented do something so difficult while looking like an absolute amateur at that thing the entire time.”

Motorcycle Sawmill Playground

Motorcycle Sawmill Playground

Freestyle motorcyclist and stunt rider Rok Bagoros headed to a sawmill in Slovenia to kick up some sawdust, first by drifting his bike between the timber, then by replacing the rear wheel of his 180 hp KTM 1290 Super Duke R EVO with a circular saw blade.

Dropping 100,000 Bouncy Balls

Dropping 100,000 Bouncy Balls

Not long ago, the guys from How Ridiculous dropped 100,000 ping pong balls from the rafters at an empty arena. Now they’ve rigged up a similar stunt, but the balls are far more bouncy this time, resulting in a longer-lasting impact after they hit the ground. But first, enjoy some fun with balloons, basketballs, and golf balls.

Hoonigan: Jump Cuts

Hoonigan: Jump Cuts

To give their old workshop a proper send-off, Hoonigan sent off-road champ RJ Anderson into the streets and sand of Long Beach, California in their modded Polaris RZR Pro R and let him run wild. Along the way, he showed off the UTV’s ample suspension by jumping over a highway and two-wheeling it through a garage.

Movie VFX That Weren’t CGI

Movie VFX That Weren’t CGI

(Gore) So much of what we see in today’s action, science fiction, horror, and fantasy films is done with computer graphics. But WhatCulture points out 10 recent movie illusions that were created in-camera with practical effects and stunt work. We can’t believe they launched real appliances at the cars in F9.

Snow Kayaking

Snow Kayaking

During the winter, whitewater kayaker Aniol Serrasolses took his one-man boat to the summit of a Chilean volcano, then rode it down the snowy slope – descending from its peak on the powder at speeds up to 100 km/h, or about 62 mph. If that’s not enough, he hit the rapids and pulled a double-kickflip maneuver at the bottom.

Flying a Plane Through Two Tunnels

Flying a Plane Through Two Tunnels

Red Bull stunt pilot Dario Costa is now the first person to ever fly a plane through two tunnels back-to-back. His flight only lasted 43.44 seconds, but the 1.4-mile flight between Istanbul’s Çatalca Tunnels is truly a thing of beauty. The fact that he took off from inside of the first tunnel is equally mind-blowing.

Rope Dart Tricks

Rope Dart Tricks

Todd Robins is an expert stunt performer as well as a high-speed camera operator for Kuma Films. In this video he shows off his rope dart throwing skills using a weapon inspired by Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion to demolish soda cans and watermelons.

The Trampoline Bridge

The Trampoline Bridge

DD Squad is all about trampolines. So when they were asked to build a trampoline bridge across a river, they jumped at the chance. Installed across Slovenia’s Ljubljana River, the 100×80-foot bridge has a giant trampoline in its center and smaller ones at its ends. They also built a smaller bouncy bridge for pedestrians.

House of Doors

House of Doors

Germany’s The Real Life Guys built what they’re calling “the world’s largest house of cards,” when in fact, what they built was a very tall house entirely out of doors. Naturally, they had to knock all their hard work down by driving a car through it. Turn subtitles on.

Running on Pillars

Running on Pillars

During parkour team STORROR’s “Floor is Lava” challenge, the team headed to Full Fathom Five, a seaside sculpture made of 108 granite pillars, then attempted to run from one end to the other. It’s incredible to see these athletes make it so far without being covered with scrapes and bruises.

The Human Catapult

The Human Catapult

Launching watermelons from a catapult sounds like a lot of fun, but launching humans seems like a terrible idea. The guys from TKOR teamed up with Jake Makes to build a catapult with a tub at one end that can fire a person into the air. At least they aimed it at a deep pond. Needless to say, don’t try anything like this at home.

Dolos Parkour

Dolos Parkour

Dolos are specially-shaped concrete blocks that are used to protect harbors and breakwaters. Parkour athlete Brodie Pawson only sees them as an obstacle to be crossed. We watched in awe as he chased his pal Michael Khedoori across a field of the 80-ton blocks along the Australian coastline without slipping.

Shooting an Apple Off Your Own Head

Shooting an Apple Off Your Own Head

Shooting an apple off of someone else’s head with an arrow is a classic archery trick. But this crazy sequence is the first time we’ve ever seen someone shoot an apple off her own head. The clip comes from a 2015 episode of America’s Got Talent, and the woman behind the crossbow is Silvia Silvia.

Jackass Forever (Trailer)

Because watching grown men act like idiots never gets old, Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze, and Jeff Tremaine have assembled the Jackass gang for another movie packed with self-destructive stunts. Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, and Wee Man are joined by a fresh batch of victims this time out. Drops 10.22.2021.

Red Bull Racing vs. the Best of British

Red Bull Racing vs. the Best of British

To celebrate the 2021 British Grand Prix, Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen took on a series of British icons. The fun-filled video pits the Honda RB7 agaisnt a double-decker bus, a classic black cab, and even a Supermarine Spitfire airplane. Even with a healthy headstart, the other vehicles had their work cut out for them.

Wingsuit Slingshot

Wingsuit Slingshot

Most wingsuit jumps we’ve seen started from an airplane or helicopter. Wingsuit pro Luigi Cani shows off with an unconventional launch, flying off the top of the tallest skyscraper in Brazil using the stored energy of a slingshot, flinging him from 0-to-34 mph in one second.

Unicycle High Jump

Unicycle High Jump

It’s tricky enough to balance on a unicycle, let alone jump one in the air and land back on its wheel without falling on your face. But Mike Taylor is a unicycle high jumper, and can launch his one-wheeler from the ground onto a stack of 10 shipping pallets, measuring roughly 61″ high.

Wind Turbine Base Jump

Wind Turbine Base Jump

The guys from BIT – BASE Inspired Travels climbed to the top of this abandoned wind turbine so they could jump off of it. The unusual Ferris wheel design of the windmill is just as interesting to look at as the brief 50-meter dive into the fog. We’d love to see footage of the climb, though.

Assassin’s Creed Leap of Faith IRL

Assassin’s Creed Leap of Faith IRL

The leap of faith from Assassin’s Creed doesn’t look like something you’d want to attempt in the real world. But DD Squad loves to push the boundaries of human ability, so they replicated the swan dive, jumping off of a platform 55 feet up into a pile of hay. Along the way, they turned in some pretty epic practice dives.
