Found this in the related videos.
Japanese ride a tree trunk down a hill as part of some festival, looks like a great way to get crushed by a massive tree!

This is even crazier than the OP. Oh, Japan, thanks for the gifs! edit: wiki link for the curious http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onbashira

edit: more googling led me to this article from the Daily Mail, where the comments section seems to indicate that the Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling tradition is now banned. Good thing we still have videos though!
