The 41-year-old took a unique approach to riding roller coasters in Italy, while he even got amongst the bumper cars to conjure up more daredevil tricks in The Last Joyride project. But what drives the Briton to keep dreaming up and performing these viral video hits?
“What matters is being able to find new places, ones that are more and more interesting and challenging. If the place isn’t open to the public, we can trace out a circuit and then work it,” said Lampkin. “It’s not the obstacles or extreme conditions that make a video spectacular, it’s the ability of the entire team to make the most of the location for filming. I did need a bit [of training] to prepare for the roller coaster video. There’s no way an abandoned attraction that’s 22 metres high can’t worry you, but the team and I made it as safe as we could – even though the risk factor was extremely high.”
