With the world at your fingertips, who even wants to get up anymore? Your social media, news, weather report, banking, groceries, and even your medical bills are right there on your phone and television. So much so that even Alexa and Siri are at your service anytime you want them. In this fast-paced world, you're always someway, somehow up to date with everything. If you're still in denial then we don't know what to tell because you're reading this article right now from your phone, isn't it? Gotcha! However, this man decided to take his couch potato life up a notch and set a new quotient. He has combined his two favorite activities—paragliding and watching TV and taken it to the skies, according to Insider.



 

 

Hasan Kaval, 29, of Izmir, Turkey, went paragliding while lounging on his couch and watching TV over the breathtaking scenery of southwest Turkey. In the video, Kaval is not strapped in and it is not advisable to try and do this at home. Kvaal used a metal frame to connect the wheels, a parachute, a footrest, a TV, and even a lamp. Just in case it gets darker, it seems. Munching on chips, sipping a drink, putting on his slippers, and changing channels, Kaval seems ridiculously at ease as he soars over the water off the coast of Lüdeniz in the video. “I wasn’t scared, my friends trusted me. It was fine,” Kaval told the Daily Mail. “I felt so good and relaxed.”



 

 

As he ascended back to the ground, he was met with loud cheers and applause from the crowd. At a cruising altitude, he opened a can of Pepsi, and a pack of Doritos, and watched some good ol' vintage cartoons, including "Tom and Jerry." This video has reached 10 million views on Youtube with over 12k comments. "Can we all just take a moment to realize this legend isn’t even wearing a parachute, absolute beast," commented @microwavedbomb1304. "The balls of this man to sit on that couch without a backup parachute," wrote @phamminh9806. "When you don't want to pay rent anymore and decide to live in the sky" is probably the funniest comment said by @brenaxquiny8639.



 

 

Not only do humans like to chill in the sky, dogs like it too. In an extremely adorable video, a 3-year-old male Samoyed is seen paragliding with his 'hooman'. The video was initially posted on Instagram from the account @ouka.sam, with the music of Limahl’s Never Ending Story. In the video, Ouka and her owner Shams can be having fun over the mountains with a leash around her. The blazing winds blew in Ouka's face yet he appeared completely unfazed. Shams filmed their little adventure while patting Ouka from time to time. The two are passing majestically over France's Col du Granon, a beautiful mountain pass, as per News18. The video has received over 57.9K likes on Instagram. 



 

 

Shams made a customized harness for Ouka for all their future adventures. The Instagram handle is filled with such trips of the owner and his dog in action on various hikes, paragliding and kayaking. In a sweet photo of them flying, posted on Instagram the caption read, "Ouka has been the biggest positive thing that happened to me for many months. It was not easy to adopt a 3 years old #samoyed who was not really educated, and it was my first dog. I followed the dog education course very meticulously, and I discovered that love and trust for a dog are unconditional. I am trying my best to give Ouka his best life, and he is helping me a lot to make me smile again. Thanks, buddy! Let’s go fly around the world now!"
