No way.

You'd have to be some kind of super geek to calculate the guys weight, distance and slope of the slide etc

Good fake though

The math is actually quite simple to determine where he'd land based on his speed leaving the ramp, his mass and the angle of the ramp. However, it would be impossible to ensure he was going the exact speed he'd need to hit the pool. At the speed he'd have to travel, that becomes an awful small target. But I still love these kind of videos. They should make some where they miss. :) Seeing him bounce on the ground would be more entertaining.

Shh! You'll scare Mike and he won't want to try it!

I'm just glad to be alive at a time we're figuring out how to put **** like this on film. Few more years, brothers and sisters, and we'll no longer be able to know if anything we see is real.

Assuming it ever was, of course.

Oh - I think we're already there :)
Hey - I could *almost* believe it. Then again, I jumped off my roof with an umbrella and pillowcase parachute as a kid. I may not be the best barometer.

And someday, I'll share the story of the ill-fated 'lemonmobile' me and the Reynolds twins took on an ill-fated journey down Larkspur Drive hill. It did not end well.

Speaking of which - anyone seen 'Hot Rod'? So bad, it's almost good :)
