A 17-year-old "amateur stuntman" from Tarzana, California, bet his friends he could clear a moving car in a single bound.

He set up a camera, and had a female assistant drive towards him at 40 miles an hour.

"I wasn't sure when to jump and jumped too late which is why I got hit," Daniel Jensen told ninemsn. "I knew I had jumped too late, then I heard my legs hit the car and I knew I was going flying, so I closed my eyes because I didn't want to see myself flying through the air."

Stunningly, Daniel somehow managed to land on his feet, and walked away from the scene with "a bruised ankle and some scratches."

He promised to pay to have his the busted windshield of his friend's car repaired. Now if only you could fix stupid.
