Video: The invincible Russian

Ace linked it in the course of a long blasphemy about Romero and now of course I’m obsessed with figuring out how it was done. I’m guessing that’s a dummy on the roof and there’s an invisible cut between it hitting the pavement and being replaced by the guy (who shows no signs of head injury despite the apparent blood spatter, please note). But watch the jump. The arms are raised and the knees bend and it appears to launch itself. How’d that happen?

The guy’s jeans also appear slightly darker than the dummy’s, but maybe that’s just me. Mild content warning. Click the image to watch.
