YouTube sensation Devin Graham’s latest video is taking audiences to new heights.

The Provo filmmaker’s newest video, which already has garnered more than 2 million views on the Internet site, has his friends jumping off and swinging from natural rock formations somewhere in an "undisclosed location," he said in an accompanying behind-the-scenes video.

In the "World’s Most Insane Rope Swing Ever!!!" Graham’s friends (Graham says he’s afraid of heights), swing from the top of a slot canyon, perform tightrope walks across the canyon, and base jump off a cliff.

In the making-of video, Graham said it was a sequel of sorts to his second most popular video ever made, a similar movie of his friends swinging from a natural arch known as Corona Arch near Moab. (The School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration last month ruled that commercial guides could not take paying clients there anymore due to liability).

"So we thought we’d top it off this year with doing something four times bigger," Graham said.

Graham is a graduate of Brigham Young University’s film school and has made more than 60 videos for YouTube that have gone viral.

His biggest hit, which amassed more than 19 million hits, is homage to the video game "Assassin’s Creed," showing an actor playing the game’s character performing parkour — free-running stunts — through the streets of Salt Lake City. He currently has 907,000 subscribers on his YouTube video channel, "devinsupertramp."
