NYC BASE Jump From Freedom Tower Ends In Arrests

Batman’s done it, so’s Spiderman and Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible, oh and the kid who jumped off of the Encom building in TRON… But did you see that YouTube video of the guys that jumped off of the new ‘One World Trade Center’ in New York City at night? I did and I thought it was a tad odd that the only thing listed in the description was lawyer representation… Well, that might be because turns out it’s kind of illegal to jump off of a building in the city, much less sneak past cameras in what was supposed to be one of the most secure buildings in the world. Oops. If you’re gonna commit a crime, you may not want to A) shoot video of it and B) shoot it all over the internet. Just sayin’.

So yeah, being all sneaky-like at the end there… Another afterthought for you, jumping in the city that never sleeps probably isn’t the best way to go all incognito. SOMEBODY’s gonna see. Oh, and that’s besides the fact that we just watched the video evidence shot by the guys themselves. Wonder if the few million views was worth the cash to be blown in legal defense. But seriously. The rush of that stunt? I’d totally do it. I’m secretly jealous of these guys. Wait, it’s not so secret now is it. I’m writing this on a public blog for anyone to see! Uh Oh. Don’t come after me. I’m a radio DJ and have no money. Bleh. Here’s the same jump shot froma  3D camera for depth…
