Real Life Assassin’s Creed surfaces at Comic Con

I can’t get enough of Street Parkour, which in case you didn’t know it, is the vigorous art of street acrobatics that relies on any vertical, or sometimes, even horizontal surface. Parkourists can be seen hopping about on rooftops, stairwells, towers, yards, courts… I think you get the PICTURE.  It has blossomed into a street art form, right next to boarding, that can take years to master and many hospital stays to endure.

If you’re a fan of the Assassin’s Creed videogame franchise, then I’m sure you’ll appreciate this amazing short as Parkourist extraordinaire Chris Romrell takes on the role of the character made famous, and takes to the streets of San Diego as Comic Con onlookers get a immortalized jolt of life imitating art.  There are no CGI tricks here- as far as I can tell.
