Cartoonist Rube Goldberg was best known for his illustrations of "machines," intricate and over-engineered contraptions designed to accomplish relatively tiny daily tasks. In "Rube Goldberg Freerunning," the video above, parkour fanatic Jason Paul shows off a colossal human powered Goldberg machine bankrolled by Red Bull Germany. The setup is pretty unreal, with every metaphorical domino you can imagine tipping in the sprawling Freerunning warehouse, from rockets, to enormous falling shipping containers to a chair sliding down the top of a bus. Too bad the last twist doesn't quite satisfy the incredible buildup.

Check out the video above and let us know what you think in the comments.
