Isn't it Hans Moretti? I believe that's one of his many signature-piece routines.

Based on hairstyles and costumes, I'd guess it was late 60s.

Yeah, the body seems different.

Some people call it middle-age because of years. Others, because of waist-size.

From the Dick Cavett Show, yeah Harley - no earlier than 1969. If he's not Han/Hans,jr...than a blantant rip-off (unless he had permission?).

Nice nostalgic clip.

Yup, that's Hans. It's a great routine. The way he starts with a box full of balloons, and ends up following that strange circle of improbable events...

Blooming heck you do kook like him ..... or he looks like you ...... com,e to thinkof it I have never seen both of you at teh same timer (OK so ive never seen Hans ever at all ..... and know he sadly passed away some years ago)

may be that is why we never see you both in the same place at the same time rather than being the same person Smile

Is there an official tape out somewhere ken?

Ok I'm new here and please don't call me crazy, and I know it has already been done, but I want to do an escape while skydiving. I've seen it done but can't remember by who. Any help will be appreciated.

I guess we are not keeping this on topic then?

Where are you in the world?

Been done by a few. Including Gallup (althogh I bet hes not doing that any more? - teh sound of tiny feet and all). And Anthony "whatshis name". and another guy on here recentyly as well. Had some nice (but not suitbale for pro mo) photos. I thnkn the title of the thread was someting like "what do you think"???? I cant recall.

First things to do is Learn to skydive (dont know you so you may already be qualified).

Next find a jump site where you will be allowed to do it. It needs to be "safe" not for you but for the ground hogs - who may get a lock on the noggin.

They wont let you just turn up and do it in the UK at a parachute club as helth and safety regs are quite tight. I did a tandem jump last year and wanted to do a handcuff escape on during the free fall part - but got no joy when I persued it. I could be wrong on this and may not have approached it in the right way.

I think your best bet would be somewhere in americal out over htedesert (where it is desert (ed -ha ha ha ha ha).

but like you said - its been done and there aint no way an audience can watch it. other than on a film.

In first video is Hans Moretti's son Hans Moretti Jr. It is also written in youtube's comments. In second video (in this topic) is of course Hans Moretti and his wife Helga. I saw Moretti live here in Finland 2005. To my knowledge that was the last year when he performed. Today Hans Moretti is 79 years old and yes still living. His sons Hans jr. and Peter presents some of their father's stunts. In Germany is publiced book Moretti: Eine Magische Karriere. It's full of excellent photos about Moretti's wonderful career.
