People Running for Trains in Slow Motion

Vimeo user Andy Lisa uploaded the video above yesterday, which shows people running for trains at what I believe is St. Pancras Station in London.

Scoring it with “Danger Zone” is a nice touch, but the best thing about the video is the names it assigns to various running styles. I’d like to think I manage a “Dignified Dart” when I’m running late in the morning, but I’m probably doing a “Self-Conscious Scuttle.”
