The New York City subway is nothing to fool around with. But apparently two guys didn't get that memo.

The video shows the thrill seekers taking turns making a 12-foot running leap across the tracks. They both clear the platform, but just barely. Given how dangerous the subway system is, it all seems more foolish than fun. 

If they had fallen onto the tracks, they could have been electrocuted by the third rail or been unable to scurry back onto the platform before a train sped into the station.
