Here's a do-it-yourself slip-and-slide that you should not try at home: a homemade water luge atop a 50-foot cliff that sends you into the lake below.
Devin Graham and his professionally trained SuperTramp stunt group took to the southern area of Lake Powell in Utah for the feat. There, the crew spent two days filming "Cliff Slip and Slide! 50 Feet! In 4K!" The final piece is just shy of three minutes long. Throughout the video, it looks as if everyone involved is having the time of his life.
The setup for the slip-and-slide seems pretty straightforward save one key ingredient: a large tarp, a lot of water, and environment-friendly dish soap. The final addition ensures that all those participating will be able to slide off and clear the cliff before landing 50 feet below in the lake.
Some of the people who slid off described the feeling of landing in the water as "when people take a box of fireworks and throw it at your back." Hopefully that is a foreign sensation to you, but regardless, there were a few minor injuries — from brush burn to a chipped tooth.
"I think everybody who did it got hurt," joked Creighton Baird, one of the stuntmen.
Their efforts weren't exactly for nothing, as the video has been viewed 2.4 million times since it was uploaded to YouTube on June 19. The SuperTramp crew used a RED camera along with a GoPro and other rigs to capture some of the visuals.
Graham's YouTube channel has more than 2 million subscribers.
