Death Defying POV Videos Show You the World Through a Parkour Athlete’s Eyes

Here’s something that’ll get your adrenaline pumping this Friday morning. Cambridge, UK resident and parkour athlete James Kingston of the Ampisound team recently went on a jaunt through some of the best parkour spots in the city, and he strapped a camera to his head so we could experience the trip first hand.

First off, we should start by saying that you shouldn’t try this at home. On the bright side, thanks to Kingston, you don’t really have to. The experience is all there for you in the video. Keep in mind, this is the same James Kingston who dangled from a 250ft tall crane and when asked “Did you go up there to die,” replied, “I didn’t go up there to die. I went up there to live.”

Check out that vertigo-inducing video here:

Scaling construction sites, jumping across rooftops and vaulting walls (not to mention hanging from cranes), both videos are likely to get you adrenaline pumping without you even standing up from your desk chair. On the down side, you might feel a bit lazy and/or out of shape when that happens.

To see more crazy stunts performed by Kingston or the rest of his team members over at Ampisound, head over to Kingston’s YouTube Channel or Facebook page, or check out Ampisound’s website.

P.S. In case the gamers our there are wondering, the Ampisound team also felt inclined to mention that any resemblance between the top video and the video game Mirror’s Edge is totally and completely intended.
