Pomparkour Ad

(YouTube link)

Pomparkour is supposedly a new "sport" that is described as parkour with ladders. This ad for a sports drink is raising eyebrows because it has no warning that these are professional stunt people and this should never be tried at home. In fact, we get a glimpse of how they did it in another video.

Notice the safety ropes, which were apparently edited out of the finished ad. -via Metafilter

Hmmm, without that warning I am now convinced that this activity is completely safe for me and my kids to try. We will be buying a ladder from Home Depot this weekend and heading to the city to have fun on high buildings.

My thoughts exactly Caleb.
If people are too stupid to realize that "Hey! Maybe I SHOULDN'T try a death defying stunt in my backyard!" then even if that commercial did have a warning, it wouldn't stop them from doing it.
