Advertisers have been using skydiving to sell their products for years (seriously, check out this Frosted Flakes skydiving commercial from the 1960s!). We've seen a lot of skydiving commercials in our time - some are funny, some are innovative, and some are just plain silly! Here's a few of our favorites from the last decade. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Would you jump out of a perfectly good airplane for some Doritos? The skydivers in this commercial would! Check out this cleverly produced spot for the Doritos' "Crash the Super Bowl" contest.
A fashion shoot at 12,000 feet? Why not! All you need is Italian Model/BASE jumper Roberta Mancino and HTC One's new smartphone to pull it off. Freefall never looked so good!
Apparently Jack's Burgers are so tasty, some people are willing to jump out of a plane for one! This hilarious commercial starring professional skydiver Melanie Curtis is sure to make you smile.
Here it is - the commercial that enraged cat lovers around the world. But don't worry, as CNN explains none of the adorable cats in this spot were actually thrown out of planes. With production work this good, you can hardly blame cat lovers for thinking it's real!
This Sony commercial is so visually stunning you might wonder if it's real. No green screens or CGI here folks, just amazing camerawork! Want to see how they did it? Check out this behind the scenes video with the director and skydivers.
