Hey! They're from Les 7 doigts de la main. They were the MCs at the TurboFest public show. They also performed that act. Interestingly they brought up a spotter for that move. ;)

They pulled it off cleanly there.

Edit - their names: Patrick Léonard (the guy on top) and Sébastien Soldevila.

Yeah the full diabolo act is on YouTube. Clean with no spotter. I think it's already been posted.

I have always found that trick amazing. This really shows the difficulty and danger involved in such an unbelievable trick, while most audiences would probably take the trick for granted. Awful accident, I hope he's allright!

Well I've jumped off somebodies shoulders (and front somersaulted) The landing is fairly harsh. I'd guess he sprained something at least.
