About

"Love You Boys" Let Go, also known as Freddy Chase Green Screen Fall, refers to a viral video of skydiver and base jumper Freddy Chase letting go of a ledge on a hot air balloon and falling with his hands behind his head before pulling out his parachute. He's asked in the video, "Any last words?" to which he replies "love you boys," and then he does a "3, 2, 1," countdown. The video was posted to TikTok in late 2021 but was later green-screened in early 2022, leading to subsequent exploitable memes where Chase would be falling into an image macro with a coinciding caption related to being nonchalant about falling.
