Played Fun Run yet? Or perhaps, like me, just watched over your kid’s shoulder as he did?
Hell, even if you haven’t heard of the game, this clip’s themes are universal enough that you’ll get it. Local filmmaker/animator Kyle Roberts’ latest project is “Fun Run in Real Life,” a three-minute video that sees some wicked parkour unleashed throughout downtown Oklahoma City — especially Stage Center, which seems made for dat sh!t — as fast-paced participants use their feet and try not to lose their heads:
You may have recognized OKC rapper Jabee lending his voice. (If not, you weren’t paying attention; like all good hip-hoppers, he directly references himself in the lyrics.)
God help us all if Hollywood decides to turn Fun Run into a movie, but if it does, Roberts deserves the directing gig. —Rod Lott
