The Birth Of Bungy: VHS Footage Of The First Jumps

The Birth Of Bungy: VHS Footage Of The First Jumps

Look, when worlds like ‘discover’ get used by white men in ships, or ‘birth’ in headlines like the one above, you have to stop for a second and consider the source. Obviously anything I post is 100% true, I’m talking about the actual source of the video – a bunch of Kiwis with epic mullets who were most likely drunk while, as they claim, inventing bungy jumping.

I’m quite happy with my job. I’m not a fireman in California, carving bespoke rocking-chairs out of trees I’ve chopped down by hand in some remote forrest in Canada, or serving coconut cocktails out of my bar on one of the quieter islands in Thailand, or you know, just enjoying my lottery winnings, but I dig it. Guerlain Chicherit has a pretty sweet job too. He gets to point his car at a ramp and then go as fast as he can toward it. It doesn’t always work out, but as far as simplicity goes, he’s nailing it.
