Compare real parkour with the sort you'll do in Brink

In this promotional video for Brink, we're shown the game's parkour mechanics as compared to how the activity looks as performed by one of it's best practitioners, freerunner Daniel Ilabaca. 

Is it just me, or is this stuff far more interesting to watch in the third-person? I understand the appeal of seeing through the eyes of the person running but it often winds up just being disorienting as I become acutely aware of the disconnect between what I'm seeing and my lazy butt being parked in a seat. Jiggling head cams don't help much either. Still impressive, though.

You can check out more Brink-sponsored parkour vids over on the "Beyond the Brink" European Parkour Tour website.
