A "Perfect" gymnastics music video

File this under: How am I only now finding out about this video?

Mason vs. Princess Superstar puts the beam, rings, p-bars, pommel horse and some large plastic workout balls to some very interesting use in this 2007 video for their song "Perfect."

Like the big gym nerd I am, I watched it twice trying to see if I could figure out which gymnasts were doing the stunts. Whoever was stunting for the women has a really nice switch ring leap.
