Felix Baumgartner's Space Jump Re-Enacted in LEGO

Apologies to everyone who has seen this, and there might be some of you out there since there are multiple versions of this roaming around on YouTube with collectively over 3M views but I could not pass this up.

Some wonderful person(s) decided to recreate Felix Baumgartner's Space Jump in Lego and it is just. too. much. fun. Having watched countless Lego videos, I thought it was pretty cute, yay, ho hum. And then they started inflating the balloon. Cute. And then it started going up. And up. And up. Much higher than I thought it would! And then... the little guy jumped. It was perfect.

I love all the little details, like the Red Bull on the capsule, the views of the folks standing around and chatting while waiting for the jump to happen, and the helmet cam. Seriously, can we talk about that for a second? Brilliant detail to add in (but don't watch if you get seasick).

Apologies again, if you saw it already. But it was too good to pass up sharing with the rest of you.
