The video starts with a man and a woman facing each other and slipping blindfolds over their eyes. He slips a strap over the top of her head and suddenly…..

They are both spinning in circles ON ROLLERSKATES and this woman covered in sequins is flying through the air suspended by the leather strap around her neck!

This was our first introduction to the amazing rollerskate performer Kim Manning and her partner in crime Trey Knight and we’ve been obsessed with their amazing feats of skill and strength ever since.
