They describe it as ‘one of the best videos we’ve made this year.’

You be the judge.

Kingsmen stuntman and former Daniel Craig body double Adam Kirley on the stuntly art (which on no account you should attempt to replicate) of exiting a moving car.

Get on all fours in the foot well facing the door. Everyone’s first instinct is to put their hands or legs down first. That’s the worst thing you can do: you will break something. The pointy parts of your body hurt – elbows, knees, hips, ankles. Put your fists under your chin, and bring your elbows together. Keep your chin tucked in to your chest to protect your head. The best point of impact is the back of the shoulder and your back. If you dive out directly onto your shoulder you’ll break it.

A GoPro minidoc featuring French rally driver Guerlain Chicherit’s attempt at a 100m ramp jump in a souped-up Mini – a stunt he completes, landing tipped forward, causing the car to tumble.

Amazingly Chicerlit received only minor injuries.

Now I know you don’t normally do this but…Was wondering could you give us a mention or shout out on your page.We’re Stunt Register Ireland – an emerging Stunt Organisation whose members have been featured in 2 Seasons of Vikings so far with Season 3 just kicking off. I myself have been part of the core stunt team alongside Coordinator Franklin Henson,  Asst Coordinator Richard Ryan and Paul Burke since its inception. We’ve really been kicking a** and taking names. I’ve attached 2 videos for you to have a look at which we coordinated, rigged, performed, shot and edited. Hope you like ’em…

G’wan the burning men!
