Felix Baumgartner Freefalls in GoPro's 2014 Super Bowl Commercial

From the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of Earth's atmosphere, GoPro cameras make it possible to capture all of life’s incredible moments. GoPro's Super Bowl XLVIII commercial documents one man’s extraordinary courage to jump from the edge of space—with GoPro cameras recording every record-breaking moment.

On October 14, 2012, Felix Baumgartner ascended 128,100 feet above Earth’s surface to the edge of space in a stratospheric balloon. Millions across the globe watched as he opened the door of the capsule, stepped off the platform, and broke the speed of sound while freefalling safely back to Earth. Felix set three world records that day—and inspired us all to reach beyond the limits of our own realities and re-imagine our potential to achieve the incredible. 

GoPro was honored to be a part of this epic achievement, with seven HERO2 cameras documenting every moment. From the airless freeze of outer space, to the record-breaking free fall and momentous return to ground—see it all through Felix’s eyes as captured by GoPro, and experience this incredible mission like never before.

Testimonials

Mark Burnett, five-time Emmy award winner and avid GoPro customer, said in a previous statement, "We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next."

"In a world of smartphones and increasingly small cameras, GoPro is still the film fans device of choice and the rugged gadget that will launch the careers of many future directors. If in doubt, check out the home made rocket that took a GoPro to space or the shark footage, both on YouTube." - T3 Award for the GoPro HERO3
