Move over mountain bikes and skateboards, there’s a new extreme sport in town: Xpogo, a sport where athletes ride and perform tricks on pogo sticks. These aren’t your average pogo sticks; they’ve been toughened up and modified so they can reach heights up to 10 feet. Watch the video above to get a quick overview of the sport from some of its star athletes, as well as some great shots of New York landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge and Washington Square Park. I can’t tell whether I should be impressed, or scared for these guys. They must take on a lot of trauma in their legs.
Quick, tell us everything that you know about Nordhordland. Of course, you know it’s a region of western Norway. Don’t know much else? Well, apparently it’s the perfect place for a super villian to establish is base of operations. Why? Well, proximity to the sea, ample power sources and a vast supply of educated labor make are just a few of the reasons that Nordhordland would be a great place to build a doomsday device. Of course, its low crime rate might throw a wrench in that evil machine. Regardless, this is one of the most creative promotional videos we’ve ever seen. Well played, Nordhordland.
