One joker takes the “Red Bull gives you wings” slogan a bit too literally, and launches himself off the roof of his house, to prove it.

One joker takes the “Red Bull gives you wings” slogan a bit too literally, and launches himself off the roof of his house, to prove it.

What happens next is sure to make you crunch as you feel his pain. He launches himself atop a gym ball, and, as was to be expected, the stunt ends in an epic fail.

The “Wannabe-Red Bull Astronaut” appears to recreate the Felix Baumgartner Stratos jump, with the earth being represented by the giant ball, who fails to cushion his fall.

This YouTube video is not exactly complex, but, as it is with car crashes, it doesn't let you look away. By the end of the clip he looks and sounds like he is in excruciating pain, and it's highly likely he broke a few bones in the landing.
