Skydiving ‘Harry Potter’ fans attempt real-life Quidditch match
Some things take a leap of faith to believe.
We have reached peak Harry Potter fandom in the most epic of ways.
Skydivers in Colombia reenacted a game of Quidditch from more than 10,000 feet in the air. Brooms in hand, the daredevils leapt out of a plane equipped with quaffles and a goal post for their mid-air match. All that was missing was a golden snitch.
The end result gives any Quidditch scene from the Harry Potter film series a run for its money:
The magical game is a promotional stunt by ETB, a Colombian phone company. The six lucky skydiving fans are all the company’s employees. It’s no doubt this crew of daredevil athletes are the envy of all Muggle Quidditch teams everywhere.
