Red Bull has a rich history of supporting athletes and artists achieve their goals, whether that's breaking a rebound record or getting back into painting. Ever wonder how to capture the inspiration that these star athletes and artists have?
This may feel like a Nike ad (and I suppose technically it is an ad), but it's also a based-on-a-true-story-hollywood-motion-picture waiting to happen... This inspiring short film is part of an ad campaign series called Make THE Difference for the TMB Bank, but it's also a true story—here are the facts:
Johnny McEntee, a UConn football player, uploaded yet another trick shot compilation to YouTube. So what if the junior third-string QB has yet to make a pass in a collegiate game? He has successfully ranked in the eyes of all-powerful Google, raking in nearly 1.5 million views in a matter of days. Good thing he registered for AdSense, and let's hope this video didn't require too many takes. Perhaps Johnny has a shot at NFL God-dom after all.
In America, football has become religion. And that religion has blossomed into an unstoppable juggernaut, which has rocked the very foundations of both television and business. In an era where fragmentation has savaged traditional network television, the NFL's Nielsen ratings (both the season games and the Superbowl) have defied gravity and actually increased.
30 Japanese schoolchildren, leg-to-leg. And they're good. Really good. What was I doing at that age, in the neon-lit elementary school gymnasium? Square dancing. Sweaty-palmed square dancing.
Though it may look staged, Phoenix Suns' Sol Patrol stuntman & ASU student, Nick Corrales, made a recent embarrassing (or awesome) "miss-dunk" during halftime, scoring perhaps the world's first (awfully painful looking) human slam dunk. Another angle: Ouch. That's gotta hurt.
Try running through fire, swimming in freezing water, wading through mud tunnels, and crawling across barbed wire, all the while being distracted by fire machine-gun blanks, thunder flashes and smoke bombs.
Wacky "mutant bicycles" by Todd Kundla. Shoe Bike takes the cake. Previously, Thieves No More! If Gumby Were a Bicycle...
From an episode of the Frank Sinatra Show in 1951, Larry Griswold performs death defying stunts in the name of entertainment. Griswold, an American gymnast, entertainer, and co-inventor of the trampoline, proved again and again that flirting with death is sure to please a crowd. Meanwhile, in the parallel universe of Julie Taymor's accident prone Spider-Man musical, the New Yorker makes a similar case in point. The production has been plagued with injury after injury- broken wrists and ribs, ...

Boo. C'mon, Mayor Cornett, where's your sense of fun? Minus the Victoria's Secret, these girls look like pretty serious athletes.
Germany company Conrad has created a bike lock that would deter even the most dedicated of thieves. The Rube Goldberg-esque device is outfitted with motorized skateboard wheels that elevate the bicycle off the ground, as high as your lamp post or utility pole of choice allows.

Pom-pom pyramids? Kids' stuff! When it comes to building sky-high human towers, who could ever match the skill and heroism of the castellers—or castle builders—of Catalonia, Spain? Nadie! Nobody! These colorful climbers have only one rival: They know it as la gravidad. You know it as gravity. Watch them contend with it in the video clip below.
Wow, the lengths some go to for a spot in the advertising limelight these days... NeilPryde Bikes created this advert of a "mad frenchman" riding a bike in flames. What do you think? Jackass worthy? Previously, Bicycle of Death (Yes, That's a Flamethrower).
How many wheels does it take to shred? Depends on who you ask! For a rollerblader, the answer would be eight. For a skateboarder, it would be four. Bicyclists would say two. And for an EXTREME unicyclist? One. Just one. A single wheel.
Imagine the marriage of UFC and arm wrestling and you've got the exceedingly ridiculous sport of XARM. Seriously, this is an "official" sport with a league. The game works like this: the contenders' arms are taped together and the first to pin the other's arm or knock them out across the table wins.
What's it like to dive 15,000 feet into a stadium of 110,000 people? Not long ago, there was only one way to find out! Thanks to Sgt. Adam Sniffen of the 101st Airborne Division, however, the experience is now available to anyone with the time and means to watch the following YouTube clip: Touchdown!
The BOND Bike (Built Of Notorious Deterrents) is a force to be reckoned with. Equipped with a flamethrower, caterpillar track, ejector seat and ski blade, the one of a kind bicycle was designed by a UK bike insurer as an advertising schtick to address the most common complaints reported by cyclists. Apparently the most prevalent concerns are:
Below is race driver Ken Block demonstrating the sport of gymkhana. He pulls some crazy tricks, but best of all is the 360 degree donut he does inside a building. The video starts to warm up around a minute in, and gets truly nuts around 3:00. (Gymkhana is a similar to autocross, except the courses are very complex and must be memorized by the driver to achieve best time. Obstacles include cones, tires, and barrels; drivers are challenged to perform "reversals, 180 degree spins, 360 degree sp...
Bike trickery + sweet beats = bike dancing in Senegal. This guy is nothing short of awesome.
From California is a Place, a portrait of young ping pong Olympic hopefuls at the ICC in Milpitas, California. These kids practice 10 hours a day.
The forefront of bike technology has delivered bikes without hubs, bikes as flexible as Gumby, and invisible steering. The latest to enter the field rethinks the bicycle chain. As in... who needs it?
We've seen lots of cool bicycles here on WonderHowTo, but somehow Michael Killian’s sideways bicycle earns him circus freak status.
Darth Vader guides us through a 42-movement Tai Chi sword form (or rather light saber form) in this CGI video created by John Leo.
Extreme wheelchair athlete Aaron Fotheringham recently landed the world's first wheelchair double backflip at a skate park in Pennsylvania on August 26, 2010.
The New York Times has posted a video gallery of top female tennis players — in slow motion.

I'd take one of these:
Indian pole gymnastics? Was this born from the primal urge to show off in nothing but the brightest and shortest orange shorts by Indian wome- wait, these are men? Burn them!
The Gumby bike. The invisible steering bike. The spokeless bike. All kinda bizarre. All kinda awesome. Designed by Luke Douglas as an entry for the James Dyson Awards, the Lunartic Cycle boasts a toothed belt drive and hubless rear wheel. I want one. Previously, The Invisible-Steering Bicycle.
Eat it boys. 13-years-old. 65 mph fastball. Striking out her victims left and right.
If only all bicycles were as twisty and malleable as Gumby- they'd be easier to lock up, and much easier to transport. Wait a sec. Perhaps there is a such a bike, after all.
If you're a believer in the power of logic, may as well skip the game tomorrow. Two math professors at the University of London have supposedly determined who will win the World Cup, and have displayed their findings as a sophisticated infographic:
This is one stylin' bicycle. Ok, I admit. I stared at the handle bars and marveled. Wow, the designer and driver of this masterpiece must have impeccable balance. You know, the "look ma no-hands type of balance". But I was wrong. The design is even more clever. Finnish designer Olli Erkkila installed a steering rod running through the frame. Venice Beach bicycle fetishists are drooling in envy as you read...
