Hmm, this is similar to my idea for a sport called "Straight line Mogging". basically the idea is to take a Mog and drive as far as you can in a straight line. Over mountains, rivers, trees, houses, whatever. There would be courses and time and deviation form the course would act as a scoring system.

Just remember you heard it here first.

Very cool.

I'm a huge fan of climbing and jumping. But my exercises don't get much beyond clambering up some rocks and jumping into water. This stuff is very impressive. It seems like a fun sport. Too bad I'm not quite as built/toned/in-shape as the guy in the video...

user92371, it doesn't seem to have much in common with Mummenschanz as far as I can tell. Well, both involve body movement, I suppose...

And it's much cooler than just driving a massive truck over stuff, betaray. This is a lot more physical and personal.

This is the same person who does all the leaping over rooftops in the BBC idents. I would link but the BBC site seems to be suffering from World Cup overload.

This reminds me so much of the Crouching tiger, hidden dragon movie. Amazing stuff.

This is so much better than "freestyle walking."
