Last weekend, I happened upon a Channel 4 documentary entitled "Don't Look Down" about daredevil urban free climbers. In that documentary, a rather disturbed and self-obsessed young Englishman travelled to Kiev in Ukraine to meet up with another urban free climber who goes by the curious nickname of Mustang Wanted. Now this young fellow is something else. He specialises in hanging from high structures with just one hand and with no safety equipment whatsoever. Honestly, seeing that documentary almost turned my stomach and I had to keep looking away. I feel rather the same about televised hospital operations and Tory party election commercials. Irksome.
So here's a taste of Mustang Wanted's bravery... or is it his idiocy? Surely one day before too long he'll lie splattered on the ground... Apologies for the unpleasant accompanying "song" and for any annoying ads that creep in:-
There are other videos of his vertiginous escapades. Just search for Mustang Wanted in YouTube. Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'm going to be sick!
