Mastering the art of mast walking

Stuntvertising seems to be all the rage at the moment, with hamsters driving trucks, dogs driving cars, Jean Claude van Damme doing splits and many others. And now you can add a man boarding a yacht, walking up the massive mast and jumping in to the ocean in his Hugo Boss suit to that oeuvre. 

Alex Thompson was the man doing the mast-walking and so far it's clocked up 750,000 views on YouTube, adding to the two million he earned when he attempted to walk on the keel a few years back.
