Again and again, RedBull Marketing creates these iconic images that get replayed and replayed time an again. Investments in building images of an active Lifestyle by RedBull have driven the brand from the very beginning, and due to their extreme nature they gather views like no other marketing we see. Here again RedBull releases content over time to reintroduce us to the experience of RedBull athletes and their brand. GoPro becomes a parallel partner to RedBull in many of these programs allowing the athletes to connect their experience to the RedBull and GoPro customers. They have together created a whole new world of marketing that when tied to social media has exploded viral marketing beyond what anyone has known. Check out this amazing video, NOW IN HD, and actually feel the sensation of what Felix Baumgartner has experienced thru the visual clues he had to relate to. The Page Group applauds GoPro and RedBull and the fabulous athletes that take it that one step further to express themselves in unique ways, BUT it also shows that every precaution must be made to assure the safety of the participants as well. Congrats on a video that continues giving.
Thanks Yahoo for posting this HD Version online again, it is truly amazing.
New HD footage of Felix Baumgartner’s incredible leap to Earth
Click here for HD Video of Baumgardt’s Amazing Video’s and plunge from space.
If there’s one thing we never get tired of watching, it’s Felix Baumgartner’s 2012 jump to Earth. Newly released HD footage offers another look at the beautiful, yet terrifying experience.
And really, we’re not sure which adjective is more appropriate here. The clip begins with Baumgartner stepping out of his space pod and looking down to the Earth below. “I wish you could see what I can see,” he says. “Sometimes, you have to get up really high to understand how small you are.”
And then he leaps. The rapid descent from 24 miles above sea level is captured on HD cameras attached to his helmet. The footage may look familiar, but this version is in HD, making the whole experience more beautiful and, yes, a lot more terrifying. In other words, not for the faint of heart.
Fair warning: Nausea-inducing spinning at around the 5:15 mark may be enough give some viewers an urge to reach for a wastebasket.
