Guys Decided To Surf On A Train In Paris And There's Video

Someone watched the first "Mission: Impossible" movie a little too much or perhaps they enjoyed the ending of "Speed" a little too intensely.

It seems that owning a GoPro these days means that you're obligated to record yourself doing feats only a stuntman or a person with a severe death wish might do.

For instance, take this group of ne'er-do-wells who decided to quite literally hop on a train in Paris.

The gentleman with the GoPro (contrary to popular belief, "The Gentleman With The GoPro" is not a forgotten Agatha Christie mystery) is one of the last of his friends to hop on the train in the video.

When he does, the locomotive starts moving AND WHAT'S THAT PERCUSSIVE BEATING SOUND? OH, NEVER MIND... IT'S JUST MY ANXIETY-RIDDEN HEART.

The guys quickly run toward the front of the train like they're in "The Great Train Robbery," which is enough to make me close my eyes in anticipation that a low-hanging bridge is going to decapitate them...

Sure, this is incredibly dangerous... but would you just look at how picturesque the Eiffel Tower is at night? It reminds me of this one French poem that-

OH MY GOD, THERE'S A LOW-HANGING WALL APPROACHING.

The train stopped abruptly before the station, which probably means that someone alerted the conductor to their presence.

They ducked, rolled and then performed some serious parkour:

Finally, they all run away in fear of getting caught.

No, they're right. The only thing scarier than running atop a moving train at night is a French detective on your tail.

In case you're still jonesing for more insane GoPro videos, check out this one in which a guy fought off a great white shark or this one featuring a space launch.

I hope you get a chance to watch these from the safety of your own home (and not on top of a train).
