The Take Flight Facebook page has just today passed 20,000 fans! In anticipation of this event we planned ahead, and in order to celebrate we have just launched two new Parkour shirts!
The two new shirts (seen above) and color variations of the Original Parkour Tee II and the Lisses France Parkour Tee. These are our two favorite color options of these designs by far, and both are only $19.95. If you want to be the first to sport either of these tees, navigate to the Take Flight store and pick your shirt up now!
The best two Parkour-featuring commercials of all time are left in our Top 10 Parkour Commercial Countdown. Both of the final two ads are so good that it was almost painful to have to decide between them. Fortunately for us our criteria did the tough job or rating them, and we now have the pleasure of revealing the seconds greatest Parkour commercial ever made.
We can not say enough about the #2 commercial so we are going to keep it simple. As one of the first Parkour-featuring commercials ever produced this ad was also one of the most culturally influential. Filmed in
The magnitude of this commercial in influence and sheer athletic performance may never be matched again, and that is why it is so highly ranked in our countdown. Enjoy the close runner up to the greatest Parkour-featuring commercial of all time, this 2001 BBC ad featuring David Belle comes in at #2.
On May 16th, 2008 we embedded three videos of David Belle in one post (David Belle x3). The last of these videos we titled “David Belle ‘Live’ ” because half of it featured Parkour from David’s perspective courtesy of a head camera. At the time of that posting we were sure there was another video of David which featured him doing Parkour from the exact same first person perspective. We wanted to place it in the post but we were unable to locate it at that time. Luckily we recently tracked that video down and we now present it to you here. Take advantage of this rare second look at Parkour from David’s perspective.
