PARK CITY — It appears that Skullcandy has been watching some Red Bull videos and wanted to get in on the action. So, the headphones company teamed up with the energy drink and decided to make some moving pictures.
Well, they made a video and officially turned it up to 11.
Skullcandy, based in Park City, had Robbie “Maddo” Maddison do something that pretty much everyone else on the planet would never do, mainly because it’s insane.
The headphone company had Maddison take a dirt bike down the Olympic ski jump at Utah’s Olympic park and the result is heart-stopping.
As I sit here at the comfort of my own desk braving the numerous paper cuts and staple-related accidents that could possibly occur, I realize I’m not quite the daredevil my 7-year-old self had hoped I’d become. But I watch the video, even 7-year-old John is happy to let someone else like Robbie take that jump.
Watch the video and get goose bumps as you see the jump and be thankful the scariest thing you’ll be asked to do today is probably eat that tuna fish sandwich without choking or smelling up the break room.
John has been writing about movies, news, sports and pretty much anything awesome for more than five years. John is the co-host of the Flix Junkies podcast and will always entertain you with his stories. John is an alumnus of both Utah Valley University and BYU. He, his wife and their two children call Salt Lake City home.
