…Ferdinand Fischer is crazy?

Ferdinand Fischer is a stuntman and stunt coordinator for SlamArtist.com, but he’s also batshit crazy, as demonstrated by his latest stunt, which involved him freefalling from a 150 ft. cliff into a big pile of cardboard boxes:

Apparently it’s a new world record, though I have no idea who else was crazy enough to try anything close to this without a parachute attached.

I kid you not when I say that the only thing I could manage to mumble while watching this clip was “No. F’ing. Way.”

…Armadillo Scooterwear is tough?

Armadillo Scooterwear is designed to handle anything the world can throw at it, so they put a stunt rider through a series of bizarre accidents, including getting caught in an explosion and getting pied in the face by an evil clown, to show just how tough their stuff really is:

…Robbie Maddison back-flipped the Thames River?

Robbie Maddison Thames Jump

Robbie Maddison has already been featured on DYH a few times for his crazy, two-wheeled stunts, which means it should come as no surprise that he’s back for another death defying jump.

This time, he used his motorcycle to no-handed back-flip over the Thames River in London thanks to the raised roadway of the famous bridge.

…Ken Block is a gymkhana mad man?

Ken Block Gymkhana

We’ve been teased, taunted and tormented, but at long last, the wait has finally paid off and the new Ken Block Gymkhana video is live and ready for viewing:

Not one to disappoint, this video includes plenty of stunts, danger and destruction, and I caught myself literally staring at the screen with my mouth open in awe at some of the moves that he manages to pull off.

Sure, it takes a bit of a budget and quite the car to pull it off, but if there is anyone out there that can start to compete with Ken in this new sport called Gymkhana, I don’t think the automotive world will know what hit it.

…Ken Block and Travis Pastrana can fly?

Racer X Magazine

Ken Block and Travis Pastrana look like they’re trying out for the next superman movie on this cover shoot for Racer X magazine.

The stunt involved Travis backflipping his MotoX bike over Block’s Subaru, and then fire was added in just for fun (and to keep things interesting).

When asked about the stunt, Block replied “Glad Travis didn’t hit his head on the top of my car, and at least I didn’t break my back this time.”

Nice.
