Good Morning, Here’s Someone Falling Off a Cliff


Straight from the streets of YouTube, here’s a helmet camera video of a gnarly dude falling down a rock face. Don’t worry, he (probably) survives!

Internet skeptics think this skier’s plunge is part of a viral marketing hoax (the title does include the bracketed plug: [Captured by his own GoPro]), but it looks pretty real to us. His moans of pain towards the end also sound authentic, probably due to his GoPro 1080p Helmet HD Hero’s AGC (automatic gain control) microphone and 48 kHz of AAC audio compression!

GoPro: If you don’t die, we’ll buy your video!
