007 and Urban Sport “Yamakasi”

In a scene in the movie, a man jumps around from high above the ground as if he were a character in a video game. He leaps from ledge to ledge and other dangerous places too. What he is doing is a real urban sport from France called Yamakasi. The video that introduced me to the sport a few years ago follows:
