Red Bull's Stratos mission set multiple records on October 14, 2012, when Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner rode a balloon up to 128,100 feet and jumped. He set records for highest manned balloon flight and fastest free fall, and became the first human to break the sound barrier outside a vehicle. He also set a YouTube record for most-watched live stream; more than 8 million people tuned in. Here, the instantly iconic event is reenacted with LEGO figures in a short video promoting Vienna's Model Maker Fair. With a tiny balloon and a GoPro camera, the recreation is spot-on. 

If you missed the live stream of the jump, you can watch Red Bull's highlight reel below.
