Is this for real?

A friend at work showed me a video of a guy jumping from 10k and going though a small hole in the top of a building and landing on a trampoline.

I think it's BS.

He claimed it was real, I bet him $20 it wasn't. i told him I would pose the question here and he agreed.

Perhaps I should have used the phrase " I know it's BS" as opposed to "I think it's BS" but there was no doubt in my mind.

Your friend should fork over all of his money, he is obviously too gullible to be responsible for it. ;)

The only way that shit could get more fake is if it was the Easter Bunny and St. Nick doing a two way into the net.

You're all a bunch of hosers. THIS is the only real video you need to see...

Arguably the coolest washer ad ever. I have no idea what topless girls have to do with a washer, but I don't care.
There's more than a few technical errors in there, but I don't care about that either.

The video in the OP is totally fake. IIRC, the beginning is Travis Pastrana's "no chute" jump. But he was wearing a climbing harness under his shorts and hooked up to a guy wearing a tandem rig.

From a technical standpoint, even if the trampoline could handle the impact, it would still be too sudden of a stop to be survivable.
Look at how high the airbags or box piles are for stuntmen who are "only" falling a hundred feet or so.
