Did anyone see Fall Out Boy
perform on VH1's Big in 05? The bass player, Peter Wentz, is freaking crazy! He jumped off of what had to be a 30 foot ledge during the last part of "Sugar We're Going Down" and sugar, I thought this boy was going down.
Here's the play by play...
Running up the stairs in the background. My point? That's a lot of steps.
Standing on the 30ft prop, rocking out with the fans.
Yeah, that's Peter. The guy with the red circle around him. At this point, I know he's gotta be thinking, "Ok, this looks a little taller from up here than I thought it would be. However, it would be highly un-rock for me to walk back down the stairs. I'm gonna have
"Yeah, even though this thing is 30 feet high, I'm still going to jump up
into the air as I jump off it."
"Oh damn, this is gonna leave a mark!" (Me, as I watched from the comfort and relative safety of my own bed, "Oh geez, that's gonna leave a mark!!")
"Landed it perfectly! Just like a rock star!"
That was the most amazing jump I've ever seen that was not using a safety harness. You can watch the video of this on VH1.com
