  How many tries did it take to get the placement for the water tank correct?  That's crazy wild.  Will.

I figure they had to use a dummy till they got the calculations correct. Still no room for error though!

Seems to be a viral marketing video for Microsoft Office in Germany. Here's another one of the series, featuring the actor talking about his dream and the preparations for the "experiment":

He even brings Einstein into his calculations!

I believe it is computer generated..   I don't believe that little tub of water would provide an adequate cushion.  It would be like hitting a brick wall.  We should be able to calculate the approximate velocity and vertical distance if we assume the numb-skull is 6 ft tall.  I will work on this calculation and get back to you all.

Don't forget to account for length contraction, mass increase, and space-time lag from the high velocity. NASA has to adjust the clocks on fast-moving satellites in order to compensate for these.
