Shawn Johnson Does a Backflip Over a Speeding Bobsled to Promote a Candy Bar [video]


In this video for Nestlé Crunch, Olympian Shawn Johnson does a backflip over a speeding bobsled. (This is one way to mash up the Summer Olympics and the Winter Olympics.) As to what this has to do with Nestlé Crunch, there's something about her being on Team Crispies and Speedskater Apolo Ohno being on Team Chocolate, and they're challenging each other to do dangerous things? It seems a bit inequitable since all Ohno does is skate down the luge. Anyway, apparently people are saying the backflip video is faked, because really, who risks their life for a candy bar commercial?

    Apparently faked? That's like saying the creature from Cloverfield was apparently not real.

    is this supposed to be a rip-off of the video of kobe jumping over the car?
