Crazy thrill-seekers fling themselves from the ‘world’s largest urban zipline’

Two years ago, thrill-seeking YouTube filmmaker Devin “SuperTramp” Graham told the Daily Dot he gets his highs “putting my camera in dangerous situations, like leaning off a cliff or riding in a flatbed truck.” Turns out that’s also how Graham gets his corporate cash—from folks like Speed Stick, Vooray, video game production houses, and hippie snack foods like Bear Naked granola. 

Graham’s latest video—shot for Speed Stick—finds the Provo, Utah, native in Panama City with a handful of his raddest bros testing out a zip-line they’ve dubbed the largest in urban history. 

There’s also some parachuting involved and a lot of pearly white smiles—and no armpit stench! Graham, who’s perhaps the most impressive filmmaker currently working when it comes to making non-thespians look like they’re having the time of their life, had just recently gone barefoot skiing behind an airplane for Vooray, urban surfing around San Francisco for Bear Naked, and slip-and-sliding through the Grand Canyon for Boardco.

Each video eclipses 1 million views without blinking. Each video’s also prefaced by some kind of ad—which means you’re basically watching an advertisement before an advertisement. Not that it matters. With Graham behind the lens, we’d watch a video of attorneys arguing about dishwasher detergent.
