Though Bed Jumping sounds like something your friend’s ooky parents did after their infamous Key Parties, it’s actually something different altogether. In this extreme(-ish) sport, participants check into their hotel rooms and then, well, jump on the bed. The only rule is that you must photograph yourself BJ’ing and then upload it to Hotels By City’s Flickr photostream. The “best” shots then get uploaded to HBC’s site.
Bed Jumping can be done individually, as a group, while doing other activities or while wearing masks. You even get extra points for face plants. Happily, this equal-opportunity activity even allows for this poor man to participate, despite his obvious physical deformity. (Ouch … that’s gonna hurt.)
If all this bed jumping is a little too juvenile for you, you can always check out HBC’s user-submitted shots of various hotel pools. It’s cool, too, though not as offbeat.
