Ever wondered what it would be like to be fired out of a slingshot?

I hadn’t, but perhaps one too many accidents with those 3-person water-balloon launchers in summers past has given me a healthy respect for elastically propelled projectiles. That certainly hasn’t stopped Devin Supertramp, who has partnered up with Mountain Dew to road trip across the country chronicling stunts just like the one in this video.

This human slingshot is available to the public, at the Hobble Creek Lodge in Springville, Utah.

Evidently, they also do weddings.
