Did they just repel the rest of the way down? If they did, how did they get their ropes down–what knot did they use on it at the top to hold their weight and then loosen and come down?

Did they go back up so they could untie their gear? Was there another person there to belay them up?

The logistics fascinate me. Especially the ones we don’t see.

Not just a crazy stunt put to film but a fun and nostalgic one. Reminds me of the swing ride at the amusement parks I went to as a child!

Since you asked: I have what I think is “Ligyrophobia”- a terrible fear of loud/sudden noises. I’ve had it since I was a baby but over time I have learned to try to “be an adult” about it. I used to have complete melt-downs at birthday parties where there were balloons and as you can guess the 4th of July is my least favorite holiday–but not because I’m not patriotic! It’s a big pain and I’d rather be scared of heights any day!!

I wonder how long they stayed on. It looks like they’re not too afraid of being caught, since they put their names in the credits.

On an unrelated note, I saw monogrammed white mugs that look supspiciously similar to yours in a West Elm catalog that arrived yesterday. The highest form of flattery?
