James Corden skydiving with Tom Cruise

So the setup was a couple days ago when Cruise challenged Corden to come skydive with him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97GS2TDhD14

Here are the results: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1wsCworwWk

Freaking hilarious and mad respect for Tom Cruise doing these stunts (Fallout was really good).

My favorite Corden bit since Carpool Karaoke with Paul McCartney last month.

I’ll watch it tonight, thanks for the heads up.

Corden has mastered the “make segments for Youtube” part of Talk Shows.

I’ve seen a ton of him and never seen a single whole episode.

Is this stunt generally accepted as real?

I’m a bit surprised the show"s insurance would allow their star, Corden to do a stunt.

It certainly looks real. :wink: What an awesome experience for James.

Not really a stunt but a pretty common activity if you got a few hundered bucks. It requires the least instruction and participation for a skydiving activity.

Tandem Skydiving

It’s a little hard to compare disparate activities, but arguably skydiving is safer than riding a motorcycle. It is definitely safer than the general aviation and ultralight flying I used to do, when you do it with certified, professional sky dive instructors. Also, the tandem jump for novices has a very good safety record.

In other words, while there is some risk, it’s safer than most people assume.
