If you like extreme, well, anything, then you’ll probably want to check out Red Bull’s Signature Series on NBC. The energy drink brand enlisted Other Films and Spontaneous to create a spectacular show opener, which is helping to drum up interest online.¬†Shot on location in Breckinridge and Glammis Dunes, it features footage of extreme athletes performing death-defying manoeuvres in breathtaking locations. Don’t try this at home, but if you do, let us know how it goes.
