    Where do you find that many boxes?

    • loocipher

      Hey – I was there helping out! Awesome day.

      The boxes were delivery by three trucks, and 100 of us started at 8am and build the landing rig and finished by about 1.30.

      Epic in every sense!

    • AnyoneForCoffee

      Someone who is moving house today is going to be p*ssed when they see someone's nicked their boxes.

  • etcrr

    He will learn to land with without the boxes eventually

    • wizardboner

      with without…? double negative… which means he will learn to land with boxes hmmmmmm

      • etcrr

        Not awake when I posted it

      • vvv

        hmmm actually it's not a double negative, it's a positive with a negative
        with without – means having not having boxes = same as not having boxes
        double negative would be without without boxes.

      • jijijijaaaaaaaaaaaaa

        how is "with without" double negative?????

        • ...

          You guys are fags…

          • ...

            Minus the guy that made the simple mistake in the first place.

            • etcrr's goat

              I wish etcrr would go jump off a fucking cliff!!!

  • IronCheffrey

    Who set up all those boxes? I think who ever did needs to be in the "I hate my job" post

    • tralfaz

      loocipher did

  • Stan

    i would make them set up about 100 acres of boxes lol

  • Oregon_country

    I bet he got the worst paper cut in human history.

  • DanTheMan10

    Saw it on the news. He DID have a chute on. Hate to bust a bubble.

    • Simon

      But he didn't deploy it, which is the main thing. You'd be too stupid to try a stunt like that without backup.

      • trickyD

        And seeing has he has two kids I would imagine the missus would insist on a chute back up!

    • tBaynes

      Travis Pastrana actually did it with no chute

    • AnyoneForCoffee


  • Nick Sumpter

    That isn't landing – its crashing but it still takes some balls!

  • Bustanut

    What's the point of this?

    To show he can smash face into cardboard boxes at 85 mph?

    • JHL1


  • MistahBalloo

    Did the other guy make it?

    • Dr_StrangePants

      That's an excellent question

      • fred

        he had a parachute. he was a cameraman. couldn't have him stealing the other dudes thunder, could ya??!!!

  • K-dog

    He’s not flying, he’s falling with style!

    • JPL

      Hitch Hickers Guide to the Galaxy: what is flying? Falling while attempting to hit the ground…and failing at it! I guess this dude got success by succeding at failing!

    • Underbaker

      To infinity and beyond…

  • Jaymackb

    Cool stunt but I'm sure whoever had that nice pile of great boxes doesn't appreciate it as much. Box vandalism is not okay

  • Shawn Bell

    I would definitely wear a full face helmet. Something about a cardboard box hitting my face at 60+ mph doesn't sound to appealing.

  • electric boogalo

    What the hell? What a waste of boxes.

  • BigPup


  • Underbaker

    So we are going to jump out of a helicopter at 2400 feet with a flying squirrel suit on and land on a bunch of cardboard boxes. Who thinks up this shit and more importantly talks people into doing it? I want to avoid that person.

    Travis Pastrana did it first… and he actually didn’t have any chute on

  • etcrr 131p

    He is falling coz he is heavier than air and this is called falling and i like it very much.

  • Chorel

    He's wearing a glide suit though. It might not be a parachute but it still slows him down a lot. Let's see him do this without ANY sort of help. Still awesome to see though.

  • torqued

    travis pastrana's version was cooler imo

  • Boogaboos

    Did he died

  • zTom

    A feat made that much more difficult due to the massive titanium balls he is sporting.
