It can be tempting when you happen across someone pulling some trials stunts in the street to make a joke referencing Danny MacAskill – as this passer-by in Glasgow did when he spotted a rider doing some tricks on the city’s Buchanan Street.
“No bad mate, no bad,” says a guy in a grey hoodie as he walks past in this video the Scottish trials ace posted to his Facebook page. “Wee bit to go before you’re Danny MacAskill, man,” he adds.
“Aye, wee bit,” replies the rider ... who happens to be none other than Danny MacAskill himself. Well played, Big Man.
