I did enjoy that, thanks, even though it may have a few faked elements, and may get kicked to the curb for being a video game commercial.

Looking at that video makes me think: of course you mix up parkours, football and martial arts.

Yeah, that's a totally striking clip, but it's also an advertisement for a video game that allows parkour-style play. General take on it seems to be that it's a blend of real parkour skills (which are generally _unbelievable_) and CGI. Interesting thing is that most folks don't really seem to mind--a lot of the online commentary just seems to take the artifice in stride, and accept the fact that it's just a cool video to _watch_.

Mad skills at fakery.

I initially read that as foosball, only to have my hopes crushed.

Capoeira, football and a little parkour. I am not that fussed over a CGI enhanced advert when there are so many good videos of capoeira, football and parkour online to choose from already.

Fake or not, that's pretty incredible.
