But look a bit closer and you will realise just what an incredible display of skill this is, as MacAskill rides across a couple of slacklines, similar to tightropes but slightly wider and with a bit more flexibility.

The video left MacAskill’s fans on Facebook slack-jawed, with Matt Gamble commenting, “Ok Danny, enough’s enough – it’s time you stopped pretending to be human and let the rest of us in on your fancy anti-gravity gadgetry.

MacAskill’s video even earned him an invite to Germany from slackline manufacturer Gibbon Slacklines, who promised to give MacAskill some more kit for future videos.
