The zombies are following him. They're doing parkour.

ZOMBIES ARE DOING PARKOUR.

We haven't just jumped the shark, we've done a running jump and scramble up a wall over it.

That was truly terrifying.

And the zombies were kinda scary too.

I guess humdrum ol' regular parkour is sort of done by now.

Also, I still don't know how we don't have more parkouristes ending up with their legs through roofs, or sitting dumbly below one as slates continue to rain down atop them.

The game kinda sounds like a graphical version of old browser based MMORPG, Urban Dead. There were a couple of interesting things about it, including free-running, a text-messaging phone network (that could be destroyed), and being able to be turned into a zombie and keep playing.

Cambridge has a long history of parkour before it even was called parkour....

That video made me feel very uncomfortable. So I won't be playing their game! Advertising at its finest.

Is this greenscreen parkour or real?

Does it make them excellent dancers?

Am I the only one who wanted him to point his camera a little higher?

Dude can do some neat stuff but he runs like Steven Seagal.

On the other hand, basic parkour should be mandatory in every PE class in the world. At least the landing and getting over walls.

Turns out parkour is one of the very few human activities that I find less exciting from a first-person perspective.
