Unless I'm out of my mind, I just saw a dude land a backflip on a slackline in a Nike advertisement during the olympics...Anybody else see that?

Yeah, it's some stoned-out hippie from Humbolt.

You should check out his video "Slacklife" on U tube.

A little long, but some cool tricks.

Start paying attention at time -.11 as the music crescendoes and don't blink.

The link is not direct.

You go to the link and the 10k commercial starts. Under that many commercials are listed, one is called Courage - click that one.
