Even by the frequently far-out standards of Nike and Traktor, the new Presto campaign is certifiably insane.Featuring the death-defying antics of a group of French urban gymnasts known as Le Parkeur, we've got a guy being chased by an angry chicken; a group of fellas trying to find their inexplicably cat-costumed buddy; and a dude who repeatedly has to leap down the side of a building to retrieve his girlfriend's stuff - though he wisely balks at getting her teeth.
