Experience the vertical skydiving world record like you're right there

(CBS News)  Do you need a pick-me-up to help get through the week? Then have I got the perfect thing for you in the form of this video above that lets you feel like you're part of the experience in setting the vertical skydiving world record. I'd recommend watching in high-definition.

The spectacular, first-person perspective skydiving video was sent to us directly from GoPro (and captured on their HD HERO®) who write about the record-setting moment: 

Watch 138 people shatter the Vertical Skydiving World Record as they form a snowflake formation at speeds up to 220 mph! 

Doing some quick calculations, I'd say some extreme sports plus first-person perspective video multiplied by 138 people equates to epic awesomeness. But feel free to check my math. And to see more sweet work from GoPro, be sure to visit their YouTube page by clicking here.
