It is amazing how extreme some people are willing to go. The Inquisitr reported numerous times of such feats which includes a jet ski ride though a tight canyon, all filmed with a GoPro camera, or a base jumper dog flying about in a custom wing suit, something the owner doesn’t believe is cruel. True, there are many scenarios of crashing and burning which results in injury or death, but sometimes it is the thrill and the risk that makes people feel most alive. Just ask Theodore Roosevelt!
Now, there is a new video out which doesn’t necessarily show people going extreme, although skateboarding is considered to be an extreme sport. Instead, these skateboarders are enjoying themselves in an indoor skate park. The cool thing? The park had been filled up with 5,001 balloons.
Uploaded on the official Youtube channel of devinsupertramp on September 16, 2014, the video already has over 750,000 views – which is three quarters of a way to a million. Out of those views, almost 20,000 of the people liked the video with only a measly 431 not enjoying skateboarders having fun. As of the publication of this article, this video is also on Youtube’s 100 Most Popular Youtube Videos list.
The video is filmed in Banzai Skatepark and was actually used as a promotion for jaseboards, a brand of skateboard. Though the video doesn’t have anything else to specify outside of skateboarders just doing their thing, the action and reaction of skateboarders with balloons in a place where balloons would even be is quite entertaining. It also helps out that the song used, titled “Free Spirit” by Fictionist, expressed not just the nature of skateboarding but the fun factor of 5,001 balloons just about.
