Motorcycling’s “Kobe Jump Video” Gone Horribly, Horribly, Horribly Wrong

Do you remember the video of Kobe Bryant that went viral, and showed the NBA superstar jumping over a speeding Aston Martin? We were pretty amazed by Kobe’s hops (if the video is real), or the great editing that went into the video (if the video is fake). Regardless of that video’s validity, we wish the following gentlemen had either of those talents shown in the above video, because as you’ll see after the jump, when you lack those skills, the stunt goes very wrong.

    In his defense, he was close! Perhaps without the helmet (not that it was going to help the rider without being secured…) the jumper could have cleared it?

    Very close indeed. Maybe if the jumper had some tall boots on.
