Car Jumping Stunt: Teen Miraculously Lands On His Feet In Epic And Dangerous Viral Video

Don't try this one at home, folks.

Daniel Jensen, a 17-year-old from California, decided he wanted to jump over a car into coming traffic and film the results. According to the Daily Mail, the teen was convinced he could do it because he practiced jumping over a set of blocks higher than a car.

Watch him attempt the dangerous stunt in the video above. (Note: It's a bit violent -- but he doesn't get hurt.)

When he attempted the feat in real life, the car ended up hitting him before he jumped. But the teen turned the failed stunt into an epic victory: He flipped over the car and landed on his feet with his hands in the air, almost like a full dismount.

"I knew I had jumped too late, then I heard my legs hit the car and I knew I was going flying, so I closed my eyes because I didn't want to see myself flying through the air," Daniel told Nine MSN News. "I opened my eyes and saw the ground and just threw my feet down."

Phew. Here's hoping he never tries that again.
