    Link: Parcour From The 1930s - Apparently it`s some sort of commercial (for pasta) ... where do I get this kind of pasta?

    This is where urban racing comes from :P

    They said "The wheel, for this daredevil it provided a thrill" at the end...I don`t think that`s supposed to be a commercial for pasta...

    They didn`t have "commercials" as we know them today in the 1930`s, did they?

    Everyone asking about the pop up:

    The company that IAB is under, along with many MANY other sites has been hit by something, so the big boys are taking care of it. They have a lot of stuff affected so you know it`s urgent to them. As far as I know IAB is still a safe site.

    Now if you`ll just look into the blue light...

    It seems to be more a mix of different footage instead of one commercial.

    It does not seem to me a meaning commercial at all. How it is related with Pasta? Are they trying to implement that only the pasta eaters are great as daredevil or stunt person ? This is stupid though it is a great video to watch.

    Could you imagine the controversy over that advert nowadays. A man climbing a building whit a kid on his back. No harnesses. But it`s from the 30s so it`s funny.


    And I belive, parkour (or parcour) is spelt with a k.

    lukas1051, way to correct others on their spelling.
    parkour is "spelled" many different ways. Spelt is a type of wheat. way to be a hypocrite
