Watch Lara Croft Model Flip Through Our Office [video]

What we have here is possibly the oddest event shot in the MTV Newsroom in 2008.

First, actress Alison Carroll -- playing the role of Lara Croft to hype the release of "Tomb Raider: Underworld" -- flexibly demonstrates what the fictional archaeologist would do if our newsroom was a tomb and a stapler was a treasure.

As you can imagine, this bit of gymnastics provoked a lot of gawking.

Then, in the second segment, Carroll made me (and helped me) do some of the moves. I risked life and limb to shoot this, so you better watch. My tumbling routine is in the second segment.
