If they quit it is because one of them broke their spine and is paralyzed.

Yeah, I don't think their ankles got the worst of the punishment.

Though i do like the song selection!

They're called 'Stealth Parkour' because of their low-key jumping and their flawless rolling. Also, did anybody else notice the epic 360 at :53?! That was definitely worth at least 25 style points...

I like the song they used, but this isn't painful to watch at all. It's actually funny, I love dumb people. :D

the funny thing is that the drops get progressively higher and the rolls become progressively slower and less coordinated.

That was the *most* appropriate part of the video - the scene in "Aladdin" the song is from is Aladdin, running for his life trying to escape the Sultan's guards. Isn't that, like, part of the original concept of parkour?  ;)

That seems to be their newest video. At least it's less terrible. I'm sorry though, but what the HELL is the singer in this song doing thinking he can sing?

But the original vid: 0:46 is my favorite :o

The shadow overtake us, we are known
We're more than carbon and chemicals
Free will is ours and we can't let go
We are the image of the invisible"

I understand that the videos are bad somehow, but I can't exactly seem to put my finger on why. Could someone explain in terms of proper form, what they're doing wrong, and what would be the way to fix it?

Well tbh, their parkour is amazing. The use of technique? Perfect. The only issue they have is bad camera quality and poor choice in music.
