    Anyone know the song? Pretty wicked as well.

    It is perhaps one of the few reasons for which I`d be bothered to post a comment on anything, but to those of you blasting the song, you got no idea of how hilarious the lyrics are, and how tongue-in-cheek it is. I have never in my life expected to find a song from Psofioi Korioi on I-A-B, let alone "Epistrofi sti fisi". I know the guys that wrote and sang it, they were a group of uni students at the University of Xanthi in Greece that wrote a bunch of good songs, became half famous for a time and have left a legacy of riotous fun. Manousos RAWKS (I wonder what on earth he`s doing now).
    Oh yeah, kudos to the guy indeed. No big deal physically, but @@s of steel needed.

    The song`s title translates to "Return to Nature" and is the epic story of a country boy that goes to the big city and turns to a pothead.

    That`s all fine and good.

    But it doesn`t matter how strong you are when a big squall of wind blows you off.

    And I`m not sure how useful even a parachute would be in heavy weather when you`re trying to land in the middle of a busy city, either.

    first off my brain told me "that has to be fake its video edited or hes got an invisible super strength wire or theres safety netting or hes going through groundhod day or thats a parachute disguised as a backpack or something"

    and then i thought "no a wire that thin wouldnt be able to hold him, u couldnt get safety net there, groundhog day was just a movie, thats a backpack."

    and then i thought "FALL FALL FALL FALL DAMN YOU FALL I WANNA SEE U DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Also, the title of this is kinda misleading, doesn`t anyone think? "Kid <i>Attempts</i> Pull-Ups on Skyscraper Scaffolding" makes it seem like he`s going to fall, no?

    Those guys are probably construction workers for the crane their on. They appear to be there on an off day but they still would have the access, also it is probably why they are not scared of the height. They work there everyday. Also they are not 2,000 ft up, no building is that tall yet(Dubai). Maybe 800 to 1000. Plus they may still be above the building and not over the edge. Still ballsy.
