The land of frog legs and baguettes has produced, in recent years and unbeknowst to most, some of the worlds most mind-numbing acrobats. I found the above video last night and had to share it. Two questions:
What the hell are kids eating in France?
[Postscript: readers have noted in the comments that this first video was actually in Mexico, though some also claim Brazil.]
If you could have the physical capabilities of any athlete in the world, who would you choose?
I might opt for another French lad named Junior. I used to breakdance (at about 1:40 of this video), but he is superhuman. The clip below is from the Red Bull BC One competition of 2004. Be sure to watch the whole thing or jump to 2:40 — you won’t believe the move in the last five seconds…
For someone who can beat him, the ultimate freak of nature and the best in the world, see another Frenchman named Lilou at 23:30:
