“Wait, is this the new Audi commercial? Hey, he dropped his chicken. She’s kinda hot, in a British sorta way,” are all thoughts running through my head while watching this latest offering from a couple dudes I met way back when Parkour was still in its “look I’m walking (but I still need to hold mommy’s hand)” stage. It’s no secret that I’m fucking old, which through inductive reasoning, would mean these guys are old too. I thought Parkour was for 13 year olds who weren’t popular enough to make the basketball team?
But no. Here’s a video of some old dudes doing Parkour, which is like watching Sean Connery do James Bond, i.e. exactly how it should be. They make everything look better. It’s bigger, harder, more stylish, more stylish, more stylish. You might be 11 years old and have your black belt in Tae Kwon Do, but I can still kick your ass six ways to Sunday.
I like this video a lot. I don’t know what the fuck I’m still doing here typing on this keyboard; all I want to do is go down to the gym and utterly destroy myself in order to have even the slightest chance of doing the type of shit these guys are doing. And that’s exactly how a video is supposed to make you feel.
