Thrill Seeking Psychos Whip Through Rio Skyline in Amazing Wingsuit Video

Norwegian stuntman Jokke Sommer and Frenchman Ludovic Woerth know a little something about living life on the edge. The two high-flying psychos took to the skies over Rio de Janeiro and soared right between two of the city’s skyscrapers.

The video kicks off with some breathtaking footage of the two flying above the clouds before dropping down and whipping through a small gap between the Ventura Corporate Towers, 460 feet above the ground. Upon landing you can hear spectators cheering at the death-defying feat and oddly enough, Beck’s “Loser” in the background. Yeah, that part is a little weird, but whatever..

It’s a crazy stunt and illegal one at that with Sommer admitting they didn’t have permission but pulled it off at 5:45 AM, exactly 20 minutes before Rio’s the first commercial flight would hit the skies.

Well done, fellas. Now bring your high-flying stunts to another skyline!
