The Mast Walk stunt for Hugo Boss by Alex Thomson has been going viral online lately and to get in on some of the action, Boxing Kangaroo Sydney devised a hilarious parody video.

The funny spoof features a plush Boxing Kangaroo mascot attempting the "daring feat aboard a low-speed Laser yacht." Alike the original video, the adventurous kangaroo delivers a dramatic intro to the stunt, followed by a long climb up the mast of the boat and then finally, a jump into the water below. The jump performed by Australia's beloved mascot will probably have you in greater anticipation than the original video.

Since Alex Thomson's original stunt was done for Hugo Boss, this video proves its good sense of humor right to the end, including a hashtag for the brave "hugoboxingkangaroo," plus several outtakes.
