Many Harry Potters fans have envisioned playing Quidditch in real life, and certainly, some have been able to. However, the limitations of real life Quidditch are apparent: Without magic, we can't get off the ground with our broomsticks no matter how hard we try. 

Take the game to the skies though, and you've got yourself a pretty daring Quidditch game. That's what a few lucky skydivers were able to do, thanks to a promotional effort by Colombian telecommunications company ETB. With the proper uniforms, broomsticks, equipment and two teams evenly divided, they went at it. And it looks awesome.

Now, the game was pretty quick (they are literally falling from the sky), but there was enough time for one player to score a point within the makeshift goal posts.  

Pretty impressive, Muggles. You can check out the full video below:
