Watch the Red Bull Stratos Jump — This Time in LEGO
We can’t keep our eyes off the live video of Felix Baumgartner’s fall from space, but this LEGO creation is well worth a two-minute distraction.
In this whimsical short, you can watch the Red Bull Stratos jump reenacted entirely by LEGO. You’ll see the team of toy men and women watch from below as Baumgartner’s helium balloon is inflated, as he floats up through the air and finally descends, and then jumps to a safe landing.
All of us are watching the live video on YouTube — in the platform’s largest ever live broadcast — are hoping the real Baumgartner’s jump goes as smoothly as LEGO Baumgartner.
The video was created to promote the Model Maker Fair in Vienna, Austria, which takes place later this month.
