Skydiving Quidditch Takes Harry Potter Fandom to the Skies

Six skydivers in Colombia enacted a Quidditch match in the sky!

Every muggle has always wanted to play Quidditch, and we do. There’s a world cup and everything. But there’s one thing we could never achieve, until now.

One of the most significant and unfortunately unattainable aspects of Quidditch is the fact that the players are flying, which is all well and good if you’re a wizard, but for us muggles it’s a little difficult. A group of skydivers have figured a way around the whole gravity thing by using it in their favor.

The team jumped out of a plane decked in full Quidditch gear WITH BROOMS. They had a net and a quaffle and the video is just as epic as you might imagine. They bash into each other and even make a goal! Harry Potter himself would be impressed.

The stunt is a promotion by Colombian phone company ETB, but that doesn’t make it any less cool.
