Mirror’s Edge IRL: Parkour Boss Simulates Game’s POV [Viral Video]


Mirror's Edge parkour

If you’re a fan of the video game Mirror’s Edge, you’re going to love this viral video (though if you’re prone to motion sickness, you better not).

Dressed as the game’s title character, Faith, U.K.-based freerunner Neil Cointet does what every parkour boss does best: perform smooth, death-defying stunts on really high things, and make us feel totally self-conscious about wasting Saturday afternoon on the couch.

The video is inspired by the video game Mirror’s Edge, which also implements free-running and a harrowing first-person perspective. Watch the video above, and let us know whether you think Cointet and Ampisound nailed it or not.
