Ever pull off the ol’ “dine & dash” when it’s time to pay the check? No matter how awesome your feat, no matter how pumping your adrenaline, you’ve got nothing on these four men.

The men were spotted in business suits, drinking at the bar at the upscale Vue de Monde in Melbourne. That restaurant is situated 55 floors up in the Rialto Towers, the 56-story building that’s noted for being the tallest office building in the southern hemisphere.

When it came time to pay the tab for their cocktails, the four men, with parachutes underneath their suits, each went to the bathroom, emerged like Superman and headed straight for the balcony, according to news.com.au. They locked the balcony door behind them so nobody could come out and grab them, climbed over some glass panels and made the 800-foot leap to the ground below.

There, they had a car waiting and drove off without being identified.

Vue de Monde owner/chef Shannon Bennett said, “I ran from the kitchen into the room and I just saw a flash of them jumping over, and at that stage none of us knew what the hell was going on.”

“They had cameras on their helmets so I’m sure we’ll all see it on YouTube pretty soon,” he said.

Clearly you won’t beat that, but share your dine and dash stories in the comments below …
