I SpeedAirman, since it's one of the first ones popularized, might have also have been the first one to have been posted up. Maybe some yamakasi footage might take the prize, though. I know they did a Ripley's Believe it or Not... on them.

i facepalmed many times throughout that video.
especially at

"a cross between ballet and building jumping"
"these city kids have invented a radical past time"
"should never under any circumstances be attempted by amateurs" (you have to start somewhere right?)
"like a choreographed dance"
"some of the obstacles the Yamakasi tackle are so dangerous we can't even show them on Ripley's" (there have been worse things on that show before)

Team Tempest.. wow .... that is a groaner.   Was the first time I saw it and it still is... But.  Speed Air Man is the oldest I think.  Its the video that got Stephane Vigroux into parkour, and he is often seen as one of the founders now he is most certainly one of the Yamakasi as well as one in the first group of people to be Davids Traceurs.

A couple of years ago someone posted up a video of an old black and white Zorro film, and the guy was doing moves that looked alot like parkour, including a kong among other things.. can't seem to find it on youtube though..
