This Insane Nvidia Stunt Sees a Whole Living Room Go Skydiving
A Man, a Cat and a TV Take to the Air
Nov 16, 2015
Nvidia appears to pull off what must be one of the most insane skydives ever in this film promoting its Shield Android TV -- but how much of it is real?
Red Bull skydiver Jeff Provenzano certainly takes part, and appears to be jumping from the plane with a couch, the TV and a cat with a kitty parachute. There's even a lamp, throw cushions and a random saxophone attached to the mocked-up living room. What's more, he continues to play video games and watch TV as he plummets toward Earth. While Provenzano unstraps himself casually towards the end, the living room ends up in smithereens.
We're really not sure how much of this is CGI -- that's what the company, which according to a spokesperson is known for "technical capabilities to simulate anything," wants consumers to wonder.
