MTV announced nine new series for “the millennial generation” (you know who you are) (don’t you?) yesterday, and amidst shows about celebrity stylists (working title: The Stylist) and an intriguing-sounding animated series called DJ and The Fro from the guys who brought you Drawn Together, there’s also Ultimate Parkour Challenge.
Now this is a show I’m looking forward to. Hyping the running-leaping-climbing activity as “the world’s fastest growing extreme sport” doesn’t quite do parkour justice, but it’s a great excuse for me to show you this clip, which I never get tired of (I particularly like the guy hopping over a moving car about 2:40 in):
What do you think? Will you watch a parkour-championship show?
