Above is a picture of a Hungarian stuntman skiing down one of the railway station escalators in Budapest, Hungary. Known as, "Szenty," he's getting a lot of press already. Good move, young aspiring stuntman. I'm sure one of Hollywood's stunt companies may be looking to add to their rosters. You need to get a SAG card first though. However, Szenty's attempt is not the first of this kind.
A few years ago, some guys in London skied down one of the London Undergrounds escalators at Angel Station. Instead of posting that video from you tube, I decided to include another where others went around posting no skiing stickers on the Angel Station escalators. Talk about a pun on a pun. I love the Brits.
Soon to be the new off-season craze? It also seems really effective if you're running late to catch the metro. Something tells me you shouldn't try this at home. Or...shall I say out. Just make sure and wear your helmet, okay? And please don't tell them I sent you.
