Paragliding for couch potatoes! Daredevil takes to the skies on a SOFA and flies around watching TV in his slippers in crazy stunt without a safety harness

  • Hasan Kaval, 29, from Izmir, Turkey, is a paragliding pilot and instructor
  • He took to the skies on the sofa with the TV on in Oludeniz in southwest Turkey 
  • He switches his shoes to his slippers in the air and enjoys a cola and Doritos 

This is the moment a fearless paragliding instructor soared through the sky while calmly sitting on a sofa watching TV.

Hasan Kaval, 29, from Izmir, Turkey, decided to turn one of his ‘crazy ideas’ into reality.

He customised a red leather sofa with a metal frame to which he attached a parachute and wheels, as well as a footstool, lamp and television.

The paragliding pilot and instructor took to the skies in Oludeniz in the Fethiye district of Muğla Province in southwest Turkey, on July 2.

Kaval filmed the stunt as his friends pushed him down a hill and the red sofa became airborne, to applause from onlookers.

Despite not being strapped in, he insisted: ‘I wasn’t scared, my friends trusted me. It was fine.’ 

Once in the sky, Kaval removes his shoes and swaps them for his slippers.

He turns on the TV, which has a camera taped to the top of it, and watches Tom and Jerry.

With the sparkling sea thousands of feet below him, he casually drinks a can of cola and eats a packet of Doritos as though sitting at home.

Kaval said afterwards: ‘I felt so good and relaxed.’

Afterwards he safely lands the sofa on the ground, gets off and continues eating his crisps. 

At the end of the video, Kaval can be seen preparing the stunt with friends as they assemble a frame with wheels for the bottom of the sofa. 

He said he first dreamed it up a couple of years ago.

Social media users have been enjoying the clip. One user said: ‘Come on dude, get up off your couch and do something today. Go outside and get some fresh air at least.’ 

Another commented: ‘The lamp made a great addition! The lack of being tethered to the couch made me a little/lot nervous!’

A third wrote: ‘Why would u watch TV with views like that?’ 

Other users were concerned for his safety and questioned where his seatbelt was. 

One commented: ‘Not even strapped in. Looks cool but also super stupid.’ 

The video, which was posted on YouTube yesterday, has had almost 75,000 views.
