Anyone that enjoys a good action movie should have a great appreciation for the stuntmen that put their lives on the line for a living. They are athletes and tough guys that are shoved to the background as the A-list celebrities bask in the limelight. In my opinion, their athletic abilities and sheer gall is so amazing that it deserves to be placed on a pedestal as high as any professional athlete out there. The abuse their bodies take and their willingness to risk it all for your entertainment should be applauded. While the following performers are probably not the professional quality seen in the Hollywood films, that’s not to say that these stunts are anything less than amazing. The following stunts will make your heart race, skip a beat, or possibly just leave you thinking WTF were they thinking!
1. Subway Stuntman: Where does one practice a stunt like this? And to what end?
2. Sliding Under The SUV: That was a pretty sweet slide. This guy must be a baseball player.
3. Ghost Rider Under The Loading Dock: That was just cool. I know I couldn’t do that. I’d have failed miserably on the dismount.
4. Wheelie Stunt, Wait For It… FAIL: This guy is so cool, checkin’ out the camera. Maybe he should have spent more time checking the traffic he was speeding towards!
5. Rooftop Transfer: No landing pad? No worries. This guy’s an animal. Albeit an incredibly insane animal, but an animal nonetheless.
6. Red Rock Riding The Bowl: This guy is a braver man than me. I blame it on my irrational fear of falling down cliffs.
7. BMX Double Back Flip: Okay. That one made me dizzy.
8. Skimming Across The Pool: Hey. Wait! Is that Travis Pastrana?
9. Hit By Car, Hold On: After the impact from the windshield, I’m thinking the small drop from the top of the car wouldn’t have been so bad. I mean, yeah, you held on to the car. But what are you going to do now?
10. Jackie Chan Style Wall Climb: I’ve only seen people move like this in real life, when they’ve got red and blue chasing them. Just putting that out there.
11. Dog Trying To Be A Billy Goat: Do you ever wonder if a puppy has aspirations of being something else when it grows up? This one wanted to be a mountain climber!
