Human Loop the Loop with Damien Walters

(YouTube link)

We've seen Sonic the Hedgehog run loops in his video game. We've done it ourselves with Hot Wheels cars when we were kids, and not so long ago, a real car did a loop-the-loop. But can a human on foot ever get up the speed to do it?

In this video, freerunner and stuntman Damien Walters (previously at Neatorama) manages to run a loop-the-loop on foot. Is this even possible? Only if you are Damien Walters, so don’t try this at home. You’ll just hurt yourself. It's a Pepsi ad, which naturally sparked jokes about the role of caffeine in the stunt. -via Viral Viral Videos

Would it have been cheating to make the loop teardrop-shaped like most coasters are nowadays? He'd spend more time running up or down and less upside-down. It would be more like Donald O'Connor in Make 'em Laugh. Or maybe that would be an even harder shape to run around. Not sure.
