Besides a bit of YouTube fame, it’s hard to say why stuntman Damien Walters challenged himself to perform a daring backflip over a speeding Formula E race car—which he couldn’t actually see coming. It’s a stunt more impressive than anything you’ll see in a Hollywood movie because there are no wires, and no computer graphics.

Not thrilling enough? There are also 360-degree VR views of the stunt, including one filmed right on the actual speeding car. Grab your Google Cardboard and experience what it was like for the driver too. [YouTube via The Verge]
