Whether you loved or hated Madonna's Super Bowl halftime show (or caught M.I.A. flying the bird), you were no doubt impressed by Andy Lewis's demonstration of slacklining -- an athletic and highly entertaining variation on wire-walking. If so, direct some of that love Colorado's way. Gibbon Slacklines, which provided Lewis and worked with Her Madgesty's team, is based in Boulder.
In a statement provided by Gibbon, Lewis downplays the difficulty of his stunt work during the big game: "Learning how to dance with Madonna and her dancers is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Using a Gibbon slackline is simple by comparison."
Then again, his routine last night only scratched the surface of his prodigious skills. Look below to see the Super Bowl segment, followed by a compilation of Lewis setting the slacklining standard and an instructional video in which he shows how the average person can try out the trend.
