Way back in 2008, Los Angeles Lakers' shooting guard Kobe Bryant created a minor uproar with a viral video filmed and released by Nike. In it, the 16-time NBA all-star vaulted a moving Aston Martin. The promotional plug of the whole thing was that Bryant's ups were courtesy of his new Nikes, although he later admitted that "Hollywood" had a big part in the video.

This new video is allegedly real, though, and comes without the help of a promotional plug for a basketball shoe. It stars a Swedish man named Al the Jumper. Rather than an Aston Martin, Al jumps a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, which is heading right for him at 80 miles per hour. It is, if it's as real as claimed, a very impressive feat, especially after seeing how handily Al clears the Lambo.

Scroll down for the video and then head into Comments and let us know what you think.

      Perhaps more impressive is the jumping onto that box with the weights.

      Jumping the Lambo is a cool trick. His form on those box jumps, though... Absolutely fantastic.

      Is this supposed to impress anyone?

        Do you think many people could or would try this? It takes a lot of balls. I'm impressed.

      I remember the guy from "that's incredible" doing the same thing back in the 80's. But I also remember him getting hurt real bad from the same stunt too. He clipped the top of the windshield and broke his foot pretty severely.

      Fascinating... That is some serious determination. I remember trying to increase my vertical in high school. Worked out so hard for six months only to gain 1.5 inches.

        a vertical leap is different than a box jump. the muscles are being used differently. someone could train to do box jumps all their life and not be able to dunk a basketball.

      For jumping 2 cars he should try Lotus Elises or Alfa 4Cs. They are very short very low cars.

      How is this news? This guy has been doing this for many many years. It's been on Top Gear even.
