...get ready for some mind clarifying, since funny-yet deceiving popularizations like this one are provoking press coverage and definitions like that:
"...Dwight, Andy and Michael "play" Parkour - a ninja-like game of free-running requiring players to "get from point A to point B as creatively as possible. (as termed by Michael Scott)".
I wish that they had put it in a better light than they actually did...
I was afraid that something like this would happen~~ Parkour would be mainstreamed as a joke :/
Thought that the office video was pretty funny though. I chuckled at the end there :P
I thought the butt of the joke in The Office skit isn't parkour but people who think they understand parkour who make videos of themselves when they don't know what they're doing. While the incorrect definition presented to the mainstream does make things harder (though i thought it was funny when it said it was edgy... five years ago), I don't think there's any disrespect directed at parkour.
The Web Soup video, OTOH, was unentertainingly stupid.
