We’ve got one question for you: what’s cooler than NERF blasters?
You know, those swanky toys that let you act like a badass without actually injuring anyone. Don’t know? What about NERF blasters and Parkour? Now, we’re talking.
Storror are a free-running and parkour collective who have been uploading their daredevil antics to YouTube for five years. TenEighty caught up with Storror’s very own Drew Taylor and Toby Segar to find out more.
From humble beginnings, their channel has now amassed over nine million views and 70,000 subscribers, and are one of the world’s top free-running teams, providing coaching, starring in TV commercials, and putting on live performances.
“To be honest, it all sort of fell into place over the years,” says Drew. “Aside from the constant progression and experiences that parkour provides for everyone, we stumbled across each other and have been best buddies ever since!
“We all have the same vision and thrive off the same stuff so it just gets even more fun as more opportunities come our way,” he continues.
Mixing their passion for parkour with some pretty skilled NERF trick shots, the Storror boys have hit the the streets of Brighton to bring us a fun and ambitious video. If we tried to launch towards a railing, we wouldn’t land on it, we’d probably break a leg. And how the hell did they get that stunning aerial shot of them jumping over buildings?
The boys are very pleased with the end result, admitting that they played with NERF blasters when they were younger. “Nothing beats a bit of sibling warfare,” says Toby. “Pretty sure our parents are still finding darts around the house to this day!
“Working with NERF on this project was awesome, and we’d love to level up and do something even bigger and better,” he adds.
Overseeing the project was Riyad Barmania, Content Director at ChannelFlip. “We love Storror’s creativity and we knew that this would be a great fit to show off their skills while demonstrating the blaster’s features,” he says.
From traversing over rooftops to doing wild flips and showcasing insane stunts, we highly recommend reliving your childhood NERF-stalgia vicariously through this video. Just don’t try any of this at home, kids – leave it to the professionals, alright?
