Woman Walks Tightrope Between 2 Moving Trucks
Volvo coordinates the stunt to show how smoothly its new FH commercial trucks handle.
In a scene straight out a James Bond movie, Volvo decided to show how smoothly its new FH commercial trucks handle by having world record-holding “highliner” Faith Dickey walk a tightrope between two of them.
Not only were the trucks moving, but Dickey had to make it across before they entered separate tunnels on an unopened stretch of highway in Croatia, which would cause the rope between them to snap.
After an initial stumble, Dickey battles high winds and tries to ignore a helicopter that’s keeping pace nearby to film the ordeal. Does she make it? Check out the video below, titled "The Ballerina Stunt," to find out.
