Man BASE Jumps 29-Storeys To Get Milk In Hilarious Clip

Is there anything more annoying than looking forward to making a brew only to find you've ran out of milk? Meaning you have to nip to the shop to fix your caffeine cravings.

However, a quick run to the shops to fetch some milk is nothing compared to what this fella is prepared to do in his hilarious video, which sees him jumping 29-storeys to get his hands on some. I love a brew as much as the next person, but I reckon this might be a little bit extreme.

Fifty-four-year old Stephen Shipman made the funny clip with the help of his pal, who played his wife in the video.

In it she tells Stephen that they've ran out of milk, prompting him to shout: "No milk?! Oh my God", before he dons his parachute and jumps from the apartment's balcony, capturing some breathtaking footage on the way.

Dropping down through heavy fog, he eventually gets back on solid ground and runs across a car park into a local supermarket to get the milk. Once he's made the purchase, he opts for a more traditional journey back home, taking the lift.

The live events lighting designer, who lives in Dubai, said: "I've done a lot of BASE jumping videos.

"Most of them are just to document an interesting jump but I've done a few like these where I've tried to give it some humour to make it more interesting.

"I've done 2500 skydives and over 600 BASE jumps, I'm still nervous every time I BASE jump.

"I was super excited. I got up an hour before sunrise to prepare.

"I needed just enough light for the cameras, but I didn't want to be seen, so I jumped just before sunrise.

"It cracks me up every time I watch it. For me the funniest part is the girl's face, I love her "you're my hero" smile at the end, like a cliché silent movie ending."

Well, you know what they say: not all heroes capes, some wear parachutes and get the milk in.
