A man whose daring dives down a waterslide went viral on TikTok has caused an internet storm.
Videos posted to the account of Frenchman @la_mascotte94 show the daredevil leaping from a great height onto a waterslide which then propels him high into the air before crashing down into the pool below.
Some users were complimentary of the ‘crazy’ act, with one writing: “41 loops and counting, that was AWESOME!”
Another said: “It honestly looks like he hit a speed boost midway through the slide.”
A third added: “That right there is the peak male athletic form,” before a fourth commented: “The level of confidence I need.”
According to Indy100, the jump was filmed at Frenzy Waterpark in Torreilles, France, as the man was taking part in a Red Bull sponsored event to find those with the ‘best tricks’.
Shocked onlookers who saw the dives could hardly believe what they were seeing, and videos on the man’s personal accounts have racked up a staggering 28million views so far.
Although many were delighted to watch the viral moment take place, others took to social media to express their dismay – particularly after seeing huge bruises all over the man’s body on Instagram.

One wrote: “Keep this up and he has about another good 4-5 jumps from a good elevation and he’s checking out. Poor diving posture.”
Another added: “Frankly be careful, it’s your life we only have one. Take care.”
A third said: “Is this guy trying to have fun after a divorce or he’s trying to kill himself?”
“Putting yourself in danger and damaging your body for the sights the fame and the money… If your body lets go the money won’t save you just slow things down,” a fourth commented.
The man’s Instagram account, which now has over 60,000 followers, shows he is no stranger to such dives, with several videos posted prior to the one that landed him internet fame.
