If you’re hitting your mid-afternoon productivity slump and need a kickstart this thrilling video of a base jumper nearly losing control of his zip line before diving into a gorge is just what the doctor ordered.
The video, which is essentially four minutes of you yelling “what the hell are you doing?” over and over in your head, shows two men zip-lining across an incredibly deep gorge before jumping off.
At one point one of the men in the video loses control of his zip line and in vain attempts to stop the rope nearly loses his fingers.
When he finally regains control the video shows he’s wet himself (who wouldn’t wet themselves?).
The entire video is put to a wonderful soundtrack of heavy panicked breath, which really doesn't help make the video any less tense.
