From the Daredevil Creators of the Human Slingshot Comes ... the Terrifying 'Human Catapult

You've might have seen their cross-canyon rope swing or their 400 mile-per-hour inner tube slingshot, but where could the daredevils participating in Devin Graham's viral videos go next? If you guessed human catapult, you'd be right on target.

The contraption, which is described as the "Human Bungee Slingshot - Human Catapult," combines the use of an ATV, bungees and telephone poles in what appears to be someone's backyard in the foothills.

The courageous -- or crazy, depending on how you look at it -- daredevil is loaded into the bungee harness, which looks minimal, but judging from our past interviews with these guys, is probably pretty safe. An ATV pulls the human subject back and releases, launching them into a horizontal, back-and-forth bungee.

Although it appears this stunt might be whiplash-inducing, the participants seem to be having a good time. It could be all the Mountain Dew they're drinking though.

Either way, the team lead by Graham (a.k.a. Devin Supertramp) has launched another trilling viral video classic with this one, garnering more than a half a million views in two days.
