Bicycle star Danny MacAskill made his favorite childhood toys very big. The giant toys are now obstacles in his latest video. The project which took two years was filmed in Glasgow.

You can watch his video on YouTube. It has more than 2 million views and it is called Imaginate. Danny who is twenty seven years old says that the project has allowed him to do the tricks that until now were just in his dreams.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
