Watch Brandon Mikesell in a ‘Squirrel Wingsuit’ Tear Down a Mountain

Sports By

At this point, you should already know what it feels like to be a squirrel. So when we saw this young fellow-me-lad Brandon Mikesell wearing what looked to be a wingsuit made from a giant jumping squirrel (it’s actually called a “squirrel wingsuit”), we couldn’t help but click play. We’re assuming you won’t either.

But before we get you to the main event, we wanted to send some props over to Mikesell for quoting one of our favorite authors, Jack London, on his Instagram page. There, he tells the world (via London): “The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall live them.” Words of wisdom, squirrel wingsuit guy, words of wisdom. Now, enjoy the show.
