Skaters Freebord to Play Real Life Tetris in SF

Sometimes art imitates life, and other times life imitates art. In a video made by Freeborders in San Francisco, 36 skaters rolled down a hill holding glowing, neon shapes and collected at the bottom to simulate a puzzle game.

They're not exactly Tetris pieces, but the concept is similar. I don't know about you, but those Freebords look like amazing fun – perhaps even more fun than human Tetris. Take a look at the video embedded below.

    I really hated the 'non classic' tetris.

    And true, wasted time.

    Now I get it. This was the example where playing Tetris is good for your brain. It involves a lot of personal and social coordination.

    A healthy mind in a healthy body :P
