If you’ve ever dreamed about flying through the air holding an umbrella like Mary Poppins, you’re not alone.

Extreme skydiver Erik Roner decided to put Mary Poppins’ mode of transportation to the test by jumping out of a hot air balloon with an umbrella to see if it really works.

Watch the mesmerizing video below!
