Is social media killing parkour authenticity?26/02/2019 Duração: 32min
Today's conversation was sparked by a controversial post made by Callum Powell (Storror) not too long ago. In one of his captions, Callum was very critical of the tactics being used by other athletes, "switching up their entire creative output from game-changing, highest level Parkour content to wannabe-viral comedy clips". He argued that pandering to muggles was not pushing the sport in a positive way. "Maybe I need to stop concerning myself with what people upload! But it would be interesting to see where Parkour as an art form is in another 5 or 10 years if it was completely driven by the blessings of muggles." -Callum Powell
