Assassin's Creed III's Connor takes a dive... from space

In the Assassin's Creed universe, not only will a straw bed break your fall no matter from what height you leap, you will also walk away without a single scratch. Sorta like Unbreakable. In fact, doesn't Bruce Willis don a cloak to assassinate that murderer at the end of the film? Oh, Shyamalan! Who would have guessed that the real twist was that Unbreakable was actually Assassin's Creed IV all along.

Which brings us to this latest video from Warialasky, in which ACIII's Connor somehow rebuilds and relaunches Sputnik I, rides it into low Earth orbit while without a space suit, leaps from the satellite and dives through the atmosphere without burning to a crisp, lands on a conveniently placed heap of straw, then runs off. Yet it's the "landing on straw" part that I have trouble accepting. Seems implausible.
