I’m writing this right in the thick of Friday afternoon, also known as “Pre-Leisure Breaking Point,” which is the best possible time of the week to contemplate extremely unorthodox leisure activities. And the folks at Red Bull have come through with possibly the least orthodox of them all, a dangerous-looking contraption known as the Mega Swing.
The Mega Swing is a lot like a regular swing, only instead of being suspended between two poles or trees on the ground, it’s suspended between two hot air balloons, which for purposes of this exhibition ascend to a height of 6,000 feet. And all but the very acrophobic can enjoy watching it all go down (er, up) in a new video.
That video can be found below. And for a lot more information on the project, check out Red Bull’s Mega Swing press release at the energy drink brand’s official site right here.
Here’s the video:
