A pleasing 2005 short by Nicolas Deveaux in which an elephant bounces gracefully on a trampoline.
Make of it what you will.
And if you liked that, you may also care for his 2012 short ‘5 Mètres 80 – Élégance’ featuring high diving giraffes.

Hasn’t moved since 2005.
Someone picked the wrong week to make a trampoline/child safety/covid analogy.

A storm is a great time to steal a trampoline from a garden.
They’ll assume it blew away.
But they won’t look in case it killed someone. #StormBrendan

Bounce Below is a labyrinthine playground in a slate quarry cavern in the Welsh mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog: three huge trampolines suspended up to 25 metres above the cavern floor, surrounded by walls of netting, connected by walkways and illuminated by a green, pink and purple light display.
Sean Taylor of Zip World sez:
“We got the idea when my business partner saw this done in woods in France but this has never been done in a cavern, this really is a world first in Wales. It’s a one hour activity where customers get dressed up in a cotton overall and given a helmet, they then jump on a train and travel inside the mountain.”
Dude, you had us at ‘cotton overall’..

Fast Track – a 52m (170 ft) long trampoline ‘jumpway’ in the wilderness created by Russian design firm Salto for the 2012 Archstoyanie Festival (a class of an architectural Burning Man in the woods) in Nikola-Lenivets:
Hardly in keeping with the boingy madness they’ve unleashed here, Salto sez:
“Fast track” is a integral part of park infrastructure, it is a road and an installation at the same time. It challenges the concept of infrastructure that only focuses on technical and functional aspects and tends to be ignorant to its surroundings. “Fast track” is an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context. It gives the user a different experience of moving and percieving the environment.

…it is formed of inflatable modules, like giant life-preservers, 30 meters in diameter. In the central part of each ring, a trampoline mesh is stretched. The floating buoys, fabricated in PVC membrane, are attached together by cord to form a stable and self-supporting ensemble. Each module under tension – filled with 3700 cubic meters of air – develops in space with an arch-like form.
