THE BEST Stunts

F1 Car Goes Skiing

F1 Car Goes Skiing

F1 cars are hard enough to handle around a smoothly paved race track, so we can only imagine how much effort it took racer Max Verstappen to muscle his Red Bull F1 car down a ski slope in Kitzbühel – Tirol. Even with chains on the tires, it had to have been a handful.

World’s Largest Hula Hoop

World’s Largest Hula Hoop

Japanese performer Yuya Yamada aka “Hoopman” uses every ounce of his core strength to spin this enormous aluminum hula hoop that measures just shy of 17 feet in diameter. He went on to set a Guinness World Record by spinning the thing six times.

Water Jet Hamster Ball

“I like being inside strange things.” The Slow Mo Guys Dan Grunchy gets packed inside of a giant inflatable ball, then launched into the air using a bunch of powerful water jets. From the outside, it really does look like some kind of out-of-control tentacled monster.

M:I Fallout Helicopter Stunt BTS

M:I Fallout Helicopter Stunt BTS

Say what you will about Tom Cruise, but one thing you can’t say is that he isn’t dedicated to his craft. Not only did Cruise learn to fly a helicopter for Mission Impossible: Fallout, he performed solo flying stunts, while acting his part, and operating on-board cameras.

Candide Thovex: Quattro 2

Candide Thovex: Quattro 2

Skier Candide Thovex is incredible on the powdery slopes, but in this collaboration with Audi, he shows off just how little snow matters to him, as he tears down rocky cliffs, dirt trails, over grass, rocks, lava stone, and just about any place he can point his tips downhill.

GoPro: 2017 in Review

GoPro: 2017 in Review

Another year has passed, and GoPro action cameras yet again helped to capture some of the year’s most epic, beautiful, entertaining, and dramatic sights. There’s no way a sub-3-minute video can sum it all up, but it’s still worth a watch – even if it is just a commercial.

Longest Body Burn

Longest Body Burn

Daredevil Antony Britton set the Guinness World Record for longest distance full body burn w/o oxygen, running 670 feet before the Stannage International Stunt Team put him out. He also ran the fastest 100m fire sprint, which is something most of us would do if set ablaze.

How to Cross the Road

How to Cross the Road

A young man gets a running start and proceeds to jump all the way across the width of a two-lane suburban street. While it may seem like the kid has superhuman powers, his long jump is well short of the world’s record of 29 ft, 2.5 in set by Bob Beamon in 1968.

Extreme Trail Running

Extreme Trail Running

Runner Kilian Jornet and photographer Seb Montaz took to Aiguille de Varan, Reninge, France for a thrilling run along a skinny trail with steep drop-offs on either side. The perspective probably makes it look narrower than it is, but it’s still sketchy as hell.

How to Stretch Your Legs

How to Stretch Your Legs

When we feel the urge to take a break on a road trip, we pull over at a rest stop. Urban explorer and daredevil Flaviu Cernescu stretches his legs a little differently, as he takes a stroll along a skinny bridge railing where a gust of wind or a slippery shoe sole could spell instant demise.

Large Formation Flight POV

Large Formation Flight POV

Pilot and adventure seeker Linkerius shared this footage of what he sees when flying in a huge formation of more than 20 single-engine military planes during an air show. It amazes us that that so many planes can fly so closely to each other and with such coordination.

Water-powered Jet Trike

Water-powered Jet Trike

You’d think that a 3-wheeler powered by water wouldn’t go very fast, but as we recently learned, liquid can generate some crazy force when under pressure. Riding atop a 6,000 PSI water tank, François Gissy was able to go from 0 to 62 mph in 0.55s with a 162mph top speed.

Slip ‘N Slide BASE Jump

Slip ‘N Slide BASE Jump

Devin “Supertramp” Graham assembled a group of daredevils, who donned parachutes, then slid down a soap-covered Slip ‘N Slide off of a 500 foot cliff for this epic stunt. The Subaru product placement is a bit in your face, but Devin’s gotta pay the bills too. BTS vid here.

Ken Block x Pennzoil: Terrakhana

Ken Block x Pennzoil: Terrakhana

Gymkhana driver Ken Block teamed up with Pennzoil Synthetics to head to the scorching desert of Swing Arm City, Utah, pushing his 600 hp Ford Fiesta ST RX43 to the limit in 102° heat, and leaving a massive trail of dirt in his wake. His hill drifts and airtime are amazing.

Fireworks Car

Fireworks Car

To celebrate the 4th of July, the guys from The Hoonigans took their bargain-priced American flag-wrapped junk car and turned it into a dangerous looking fireworks show on wheels. We’re a bit perplexed that they chose to use a German car to celebrate America’s birthday.

Skydiving from a Drone

Skydiving from a Drone

A while back, we watched CaseyNeistat hang from a drone that lifted him off the ground, but this feat is even more impressive, as Aerones used their 28-propellor drone to lift skydiver Ingus Augstkalns from a tower to a height of ~1082 ft before he lept off. (Thanks Einarr!)

Man vs. Mousetraps in Slo-Mo

Man vs. Mousetraps in Slo-Mo

The Slow-Mo Guys set up one of their more ridiculous stunts yet, packing a trampoline with 1000 fully-armed mousetraps, then Dan jumped into the middle of them. As painful as you’d think it might have been, The Backyard Scientist’s rig would have hurt much more.

RJ Anderson: XP1K4

RJ Anderson: XP1K4

The Last Viper

Pennzoil pays tribute to the end of an era – with some epic footage of Rhys Millen driving the 645hp Dodge Viper ACR, doing what it does best, firing flames from its exhaust pipes, smoking tires, going sideways, and even catching a little air. Fare thee well, Viper.
