Let’s watch a group of Colombian skydivers play Quidditch

Seeing as flying broomsticks don't exist and Quidditch is a fictional sport from the mind of J.K. Rowling, you can't actually play it. Or can you?

A group of skydivers did their best to recreate the game, broomsticks and all, for a short promotional video for what I believe is a Colombian phone company. They've got uniforms that look similar to the movies and even the balls: a Quaffle, two Bludgers, and the Snitch. (They appear to be beach balls, which is good because throwing orbs made of iron out of a plane would be just a little bit dangerous for anyone on the ground. The broomsticks, too, come to think of it … )

They had to hold the hoops up themselves, but we do see one team manage to get 10 points before the parachutes were deployed.
