THE BEST Stunts

Helicopter vs. Drift Car

Helicopter vs. Drift Car

Daredevil Felix Baumgartner’s latest stunt has him behind the controls of an aerobatic helicopter, hovering dangerously close to drift racer Jakub Przygoński and his 1000hp Toyota GT 86, playing a game of vehicular cat and mouse.

Big Rig, Big Jump

Big Rig, Big Jump

Stunt driver Gregg Godfrey recently smashed his own record for jumping in a big rig semi truck, flying 166 feet across a pair of dirt ramps, paying tribute to the late Evel Knievel. The previous record was just 50 feet. Side view here.

Monster

Monster

(PG-13) The latest martial arts action film from LBP Stunts Chicago gets going right away, as a man finds himself at the mercy of his captors, and must do what he can to escape and then take revenge on the men who did him wrong.

Surfing on Fire

Surfing on Fire

Jamie O’Brien looks like a badass as he surfs the daunting waves of Tahiti’s Teahupo’o, with his wetsuit lit on fire. We suppose if anything went wrong he could just fall down and dowse himself, but then the massive wave might get him.

Tom Cruise’s MI: Rogue Nation Stunt

Tom Cruise’s MI: Rogue Nation Stunt

Tom Cruise may not be as crazy as Jackie Chan, but he’s awfully close. He didn’t have a double for his airplane stunt in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, which took them eight takes to get right. It should be named MI: Balls of Steel.

BMX Quadruple Backflip

BMX Quadruple Backflip

After extensive planning, numerous failures, injuries, and an ample dose of hype, Nitro Circus cyclist Jed Mildon has pulled of what was once thought to be physically impossible – a 1440º backflip on his BMX bike.

Hold & Release Bungee Jump

Hold & Release Bungee Jump

Acrobat Damien Walters is back with another crazy stunt – what could only be called the first proper bungee jump. Instead of springing back up when he reaches the bottom, he dismounts. See all the prep that went into the stunt here.

Swinging Over a House

Swinging Over a House

We all wanted to swing all the way to the sky when we were kids, but acrobat and stuntman Damien Walters turned that idea up a notch – jumping off a Russian swing at its highest point to fly over an entire house.

Wingsuit Through Hole

Wingsuit Through Hole

We’ve seen wingsuit flights through narrow gaps, but none narrower than this one. Uli Emanuele successfully zipped through a hole that’s just over 6ft. wide between two rock formations. Even fellow BASE jumpers knew it was madness.

Road Bike Freestyle 2

Road Bike Freestyle 2

Free rider Vittorio Brumotti shows us his superhuman skill and the celestial bodies that are his balls in this jaw-dropping display. Watch him take on all sorts of terrain, from an airplane graveyard to a thin rail by the side of a cliff.

Insanely Low Roller Limbo

Insanely Low Roller Limbo

Our bodies ache just watching this 5 year-old girl from India as she breaks the world’s record for the lowest and longest limbo skate, remaining under a series of 7″ tall bars for the entire 196 foot run.

Glowing Wingsuit Flight

Glowing Wingsuit Flight

Aerial athlete Roberta Mancino jumps from a helicopter over Panama City at night donning a special wingsuit loaded with white LEDs, making the flyer herself as much of a spectacle as the view beneath her.

Goodwood on Two Wheels

Goodwood on Two Wheels

Not only did stunt driver Terry Grant do the famous UK hillclimb with two wheels off the ground, he broke the Guinness Record for fastest mile in a car on two wheels, coming in at 2m 10s in the GT-R powered Nissan Juke RS Nismo.

We Are Vikings

We Are Vikings

Filmmaker Alex Yde captured this awesome POV perspective of his performance in a viking-themed stunt show – an action-packed first-person sequence that’s more exciting than most video games. The track is Iron by Woodkid.

Formation Hangar Fly-Through

Formation Hangar Fly-Through

Red Bull Air Race pilots Paul Bonhomme and Steve Jones pulled one of the most epic feats of flying skill ever, as the two flew their stunt planes side-by-side through a hangar just 24 feet high, their wheels just 3 feet from the ground.

Cat: Driving Range

Cat: Driving Range

For their latest #BuiltForIt trial, the guys from Caterpillar arranged to turn several of their huge industrial machines into a golf course on wheels, then turned loose two LPGA professionals to try and hit the green. BTS footage here.

Real Life Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst

Real Life Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst

(PG-13 Language) Nope, this is not footage from a video game. Director Claudio Voicu and a group of freerunners wonderfully recreated a time trial stage from the upcoming prequel Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst. Behind the scenes here.

Real Car, Virtual Course

Real Car, Virtual Course

To promote its EDGE product line, Castrol enlisted Matt Powers to drift his 650hp Ford Mustang while wearing an Oculus Rift that simulated a course filled with daunting obstacles. Watch the 360° version here. BTS video here.

Motorcycle Surfing

Motorcycle Surfing

The skateboard was invented to sate the landbound surfer’s itch, but apparently a motorcycle going at at least 50mph works too. If you don’t care for the stunt, Utah’s beautiful countryside makes this video worth watching.

Motorcycle Fire Tunnel

Motorcycle Fire Tunnel

Stuntmen Enrico Schoeman and André de Kock pulled off this death-defying record breaking feat in which they drove their motorcycle through a 395 foot-long tunnel of fire – and this is after they were injured on previous attempts.

Triple Scooter Backflip

Triple Scooter Backflip

During a recent Nitro Circus event, performer R Willy pulled off an astounding feat – the world’s first triple backflip on a scooter. Apparently, he’s been attempting this at every show for two years straight, so persistence pays off.

Insane Hi-Rise Parkour

Insane Hi-Rise Parkour

Despite being only 15 seconds long, this POV video of parkour acrobat Oleg Cricket running and jumping between ledges atop a hi-rise will have you sitting on the edge of your seat – because you probably wet your pants.

On the Roofs: Shenzhen Centre

On the Roofs: Shenzhen Centre

The latest conquest of the trespassing thrill-seekers known as On the Roofs is the Ping An Finance Centre in Shenzhen, China. Still under construction, the skyscraper currently stands about 2,200ft. high.

Crazy Bike Swap

Crazy Bike Swap

Before the Kia World Extreme Games, rider Pat “Big Daddy” Laughlin performed an insane stunt, riding his bike down a ramp, dismounting and landing on another bike to finish his ride. We went from “No way.” to “Way!” and you will too.

FMX Triple Backflip

FMX Triple Backflip

Nitro Circus and Red Bull rider Josh Sheehan made history by pulling off the world’s first triple backflip on a motorcycle. The air he got was insane, but his measured landing is even more impressive (and important).

Skateboarding without Wheels

Skateboarding without Wheels

Wheels? We don’t need no steenkin’ wheels! That’s the thought that must have been going through the minds of MAJER Crew as they show off some skate tricks with the wheels pulled off of their skateboards, riding only on the bearings.
