AUCKLAND, New Zealand (UPI) — A pair of New Zealand entrepreneurs promoted their Web-page-building service by creating one while skydiving from 8,000 feet.

Chris Hirst and Leo Zhao, the creators of Designbymobile, said they became the first people to build a Web page during freefall to promote their service, which allows users to quickly and easily create their own pages using a computer, tablet or smartphone, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

“We thought we’d jump out of a plane and create and publish a web page on the way down,” Hirst said. “Actually, we jumped twice just to prove how crazy we are.”

The men used video footage from their first jump to create the website they made during their second stunt.
