This is totally NSFW

Taken from an evening newscast back when people watched the evening newscasts, this video of Philippe Petit pulling off the "artistic crime of the century" would be quaint if viewing it didn't also bring on dizziness.

Shut your eyes, kids. He apparently did.

Early Bird All-Access Passes to see Petit and other high wire acts at the IdeaFestival are now available through Sunday. Individual tickets are on sale as well.

Between he and Janelle Monae, I'm wondering who is the better tightrope performer.
