What you are about to see is the culmination of 2 years of work from bike stunt rider Danny MacAskill. After watching this clip you will never forget Danny or Redbull.
Danny released his first stunt video on Youtube back on April 19th, 2009. The 5:30 video changed his life. At the time of this posting the video has 32.8 million views. Even today it’s pretty damn fascinating. The video which received a few hundred thousand views overnight took Danny’s life and bike riding career to the next level.
He since has landed a big time sponsorship with Redbull and has never looked back.
The video below entitled “Imaginate” is part of a six part series that shows all the work leading up to the 7 minute masterpiece. With huge props and a huge budget, the tricks and stunts are equally huge. There are flips on huge rubber balls and 360 degree loop to loops. MacAskill says that the “front flip to train track” stunt alone took 250 takes. …and that was just one trick. When you watch the video you will see exactly why.
After you watch Imaginate, take another 5 minutes to watch his first video. It’s raw and to me more entertaining and edgier then Imaginate but when you have no money and your roommate is the camera man, raw and edgy is all you really have. Enjoy.
