Respect this weapon: stuntman Steven Ho dropped by Conan O’Brien’s show to demo some cool fighting techniques, which means a fun behind the scenes lesson and an amusing Conan beatdown.

The Wanderer

The Wanderer

Think you’ve got upper-body strength? Clearly you never saw Joel Fletcher’s 1981 short film, The Wanderer, featuring Mark Daniel and his unreal ability to walk (everywhere) on his hands.

Skiing On Park Ave.

Skiing On Park Ave.

Sure, it’s probably not the safest thing you could do, but this madman had the cojones to ski down New York’s Park Avenue at a rather insane 40mph. Awesome, but don’t get any funny ideas.

Win Compilation 2010

Motorcycle vs. Bobsled

Motorcycle vs. Bobsled

Stunt rider Chris Pfeiffer takes his BMW G450X out on the Innsbruck Olympic bobsled run and plays a game of chicken with an approaching sled. Don’t try this at home, even if you have a bobsled run.

Storm Freerun: Volume 1

Storm Freerun: Volume 1

It takes a couple of minutes for the action to really kick in, but once it gets going, you’re in for 5 minutes of epic freestyle parkour action shot in and around London. Impatient? Jump to 2:25.

World Record Snowmobile Jump

World Record Snowmobile Jump

Preparing for a New Years Eve stunt, Levi LaVallee jumped 361 feet on his snowmobile. Sadly, Levi was injured on a later run, and won’t be doing the stunt – but he still broke the record during practice.

Jet Sledding

Jet Sledding

They have JetSkis in the summer, so why not JetSleds in the winter? These maniacs tied their sleds to skitch behind a Swedish fighter jet. They left out the part where the jet takes off.

Freestyle Motocross Short Film

Freestyle Motocross Short Film

For some reason, the combination in Peter Miller’s Canon Rebel T2i video of spirited motocross skills, the evocative music of Sigur Rós and the season’s luminous light has us really mesmerized right now.

Casterller

Casterller

Every two years, thousands gather in Tarragona, Spain for a challenge of strength and balance. The objective: build the tallest human castle possible. The collapses are as spectacular as the triumphs.

William Tell Watermelon

William Tell Watermelon

If you thought the whole William Tell shooting-an-apple-off-your-head thing seemed dangerous, check out Freddie Wong’s watermelon helmet vs. .50 caliber rifle. Do not try this at home. Ever.

L Train Surfing

L Train Surfing

We’ll start out by saying that we don’t recommend that you try this at home. We suggest you leave surfing on the top of moving trains to daredevils lunatics like this guy, who goes by the name “537.”

Burn: Ride (Short Film)

Burn: Ride (Short Film)

We’re not sure if the skateboarders in Garth Davis’ incredible short film for Burn are actually on fire, or if it’s just the most amazing CGI we’ve seen. Either way, our minds are boggled.

Seven Layer Dip

Seven Layer Dip

Stunt duo Sam Hargrave and Monique Ganderton end up kicking the crap out of each other over a simple argument over snack food. We suppose wars have started over less, though.

Stupid Moped Tricks

Stupid Moped Tricks

This moped rider not only hit the highway at 85 mph – without a helmet, he does it lying down, with his face towards the ground. We’re amazed the stunt ended without tragedy.
