Here's Franklin Jumping Over 28 Exploding Buses In GTA V

It may not be the single craziest Grand Theft Auto V stunt I've ever seen. But this video of an enterprising GTA V player who jumped over 28 exploding buses still earned a special place in my heart for the clever reference to Evel Knievel.

Remember: in October 1975—less than six months after Knievel had shattered his pelvis and subsequently promised that he would "never, ever, ever, ever jump again"—the legendary daredevil got back on the bike and jumped a record 180 feet over a line of Greyhound buses.

Here's the video of the real-life daredevil:

And here's his virtual protégé:

Not to split hairs here, but the GTA V daredevil managed to jump over exactly twice as many buses as Knievel did. Not only that, but he managed to time his own explosions to detonate just as as he was making the jump the second time around. Take THAT, real life daredevil person.
