World champion slackliner Faith Dickey has walked between two trucks in a classic "don't try this at home" advertisement.
Dickey's stunt involves walking a rope tied between the trailer units of two Volvo FH trucks speeding down separate lanes on an unopened highway in Croatia.
If that wasn't dangerous enough she had to battle the associated winds from the moving vehicles and the approaching split road tunnels that added a further adrenalin boost to the stunt as Dickey explained she would crash to the highway if not across in time.
Filming was undertaken in co-operation with Hollywood stunt director Peter Pedrero (James Bond, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean) and directed by Academy Award nominee Henry Alex Rubin.
Slacklining is similar to tightrope walking, except the rope is not held rigidly taut.
