    wow..

    That was pretty impressive...

    I like the part where they show the guy bouncing between the guardrails as he falls down the staircase!!

    I bet some of those guys are the 'professional runners' from the Scion commercial. The sequence ended in a similar looking parking structure, even.

    Coolest part by far was when he broke through the window at the top of the door. :D

    I only had the sound. Bummer. My codec config seems to be shot somehow.

    After watching it again, I bet those guys are shouting all kinds of expletives in French, thus making this clip inappropriate. :D
     
  7. Absolutely! :cool:

    But, all this chasing and jumping would not be necessary if this guy would just return his library books on time. :D

    That was awesome, but I found it kinda amusing that his cohorts where pretty much able to keep up with him using the stairs lol.

    Unfortunately not. I think the Windows Media codec is shot. But thanks!
