Viral Video of the Day: Subway Skaters Jump the Tracks

Skateboarding video showcases crazy stunt work

Skateboarding is not a crime—though skateboarding on subway platforms is probably frowned upon. Intrepid skaters take over New York City tunnels and tracks, grinding benches and escalators at various subway stops throughout the five boroughs, culminating in a jump across the tracks from one platform at 145th Street to the other.

The clip is from director Colin Read’s video Tengu: God of Mischief, which also has scenes shot in San Francisco, Tokyo and Bordeaux. Though it should go without saying, don’t try this on your own.
