Watch GI Editors Jump Out Of A Damn Plane

I've long been a fan of convincing my friends to do stupid things with me. Whether it's breaking into a scholarship hall in college to steal a bunch of nacho cheese or getting a bunch of people to get drunk and see Jack & Jill with me (to make fun of it, I assure you), no pursuit is too stupid or potentially ill-fated. I went solo skydiving several times in the early 2000s, and I decided recently that it was time for my first high-altitude tandem jump. Expecting to recruit maybe five or six adventurous friends, I was surprised to assemble a group of 17 terrified buddies to join me in my trip to Westside Skydivers in Winsted, Minnesota. Among the group were four Game Informer editors: Tim Turi, Ben Reeves, Ben Hanson, and myself. We grabbed footage of the entire ordeal, and you can watch it here.

Click below to see me scared out of my mind, Tim be angry at the sky, Hanson look like he's either about to cry or crap his pants, and Ben Reeves making the absolute dumbest faces I've ever seen on a human being.

Thanks to our video producer Ben Hanson for his work editing Westside's footage!
