Will Sutton, well known for his wicked parkour skills, is quite possibly the only person capable of making selfie sticks cool.
Using a GoPro and a selfie stick, the London-based professional free runner, created this action-filled point-of-view “selfie” video while showing off what he can do.
Have a seat before watching this; Sutton’s incredible talent could make you dizzy.
“Worked on this for a little while now, experimenting with transitions within selfie free running,” Sutton wrote on YouTube about ‘Selfie Free Running 4K.
Though he makes it look effortless, that’s 10+ years of experience in action; capturing this unique footage was no easy task.
“While recording I did fracture a few bones in my feet and took a few hits, but generally it wasn’t too bad,” Sutton told Business Insider.
Sutton also describes himself as a filmmaker, which could explain the impressive filming and editing efforts that went into creating this video.
People often share their success and hide their failures, but Sutton shared a video on his Facebook page showing just how much it hurts when you fail at parkour. The video is a bit graphic so I didn’t include it in the post, but you can see it here.
This kind of extreme footage is exactly what catapulted GoPro’s cameras to fame, but the company will need a lot more of this positive publicity for to improve its disastrous sales and for investors to drop their lawsuit.
For your viewing pleasure, here are a couple of videos showing Sutton’s skills:
