WATCH: Astronaut Sponsored By Slim Jim Does World’s Shortest Freefall On Conan O’Brien

Earlier this month Felix Baumgartner did a 125,000+ jump from a space pod above the Earth.  He broke the sound barrier as a result and over 8 million people watched him on YouTube at once.  The entire event was sponsored by Red Bull.  Slim Jim did not want to miss out on the man-dropping action so they conducted the “world’s shortest freefall” stunt on Conan O’Brien.

Slim Jim’s man-drop was “four inches of pure excitement.”  Check out the video on Conan below:
