A bit off-topic to the trivia question, but someone Emailed me that video today insisting it was real. Well, since MRM Worldwide (marketing agency) has since admitted it was part of a Microsoft viral ad campaign for Microsoft Office, and since this is related to another industry I'm involved in (rigging and special effects), I can probably now safely post the photos below.






The stuntman was lowered along the upper slide on a rope slowly (sped up in the actual video), stopping at the bottom of the slide. The body flying through the air was a CG animation. The splash and ending are real, with the stuntman then jumping into the pool from a wood platform several feet above.

While off-topic, who knows, maybe these pics of the T-bar from another angle as well as the photo of the inside of the base terminal (full of production gear and junk) will help someone answer the trivia question. :-)
