Part video game and part freerunning action, it's no surprise that the Redbull 'Jason Paul Arcade Run' video has already become a viral success. The video is set up like a retro side-scrolling Super Mario game, but rather than having digitally generated graphics, all of the props that Paul runs and jumps onto are real.

Just like an agile video game character, Paul leaps over obstacles and engages in an epic boss battle. Near the end of the video when the camera changes perspective, you can see how the stunt was set up. The video is entertaining to watch and definitely encompasses that high energy and fun that Redbull loves to capture. In addition to this video, Redbull also details how it all came together with an intriguing making-of video.
