Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!

I chose this cartoon because I found it to be very humorous.  How often to you hear someone comparing the ride up and down from Rapunzel's tower to bungee jumping? 
I think this cartoon relates to both the tale Rapunzel and the Movie Tangled.  The most obvious reason why it relates to the the Grimms' tale is because the man bungee jumping is a prince, not an orphan like Flynn Rider is in Tangled.  However in the tale, we don't exactly hear about anyone swinging or using the hair for anything other than as a way to get up and down from the tower.  In the movie though, Rapunzel uses her hair for a lot.  There are several scenes where she uses it to tie someone up, to get from place to place in her tower, and at one point she is swinging around a tree on it like it were a swing and it was no big deal.  If she can heal Flynn's hand with her hair as well as use it every day to lift people up to her tower, I am almost positive bungee jumping with it would not be a problem either.
