Energy drink brand Red Bull in the US has unleashed the next instalment in its series of Rube Goldberg-style videos with a new clip showing 11 famous athletes performing sports-based stunts.
Called 'Red Bull Kluge: The Athlete Machine', the clip has featured American sports stars including skater Ryan Sheckler, skydiver Sean MacCormac, BMX rider Drew Beaznson and snowboarder Pat Moore.
The five-minute spot, which took four hours to film, was created by Red Bull in collaboration with production company Syyn Labs co-founder Adam Sadowsky. The brand claimed a crew of 100 people were needed to ensure production ran smoothly.
Since its launch on 11 November it has been viewed 714,524 times.
The video was a follow-up to Red Bull's 'Human-Powered Freefalling Machine' stunt, released last month, which topped the AdNews Viral Video Chart with over 3.7 million views. It has now garnered almost another two million hits, with a massive 5.6 million views.
Following this was its now-famous 'Supersonic Space Free-Fall' clip featuring Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner. The stunt was covered by global media and has amassed just under 30 million Youtube hits since its launch at mid-October.
