Insane skydivers play real-life game of quidditch in freefall

May 7, 2016

First off: no. Not even once.

Not even one time would I jump out of a plane in an attempt to play real, airborn quidditch. But I'm glad someone else did, because it was sufficiently and unequivocally awesome.

SB Nation's James Dator spotted video of a group of skydivers jumping out of plane with brooms, quaffle and a makeshift goal ring (close cousin of the "basketball ring").

What followed was relentless madness.

I can't imagine how many takes this took. In my heart I want it to be one. Because I believe in magic. And in not jumping out planes unless absolutely necessary.
