Halo: Reach Spartan in a rocketpack lands in London

To promote Halo: Reach, Microsoft lands a warrior from the game in Trafalgar Square in London, and it's kind of awesome.

Yes, it's a promotional video by a major corporation that's trying to make it viral, but it's also totally awesome. To promote Halo: Reach (like it needs help), Microsoft outfitted a stunt man like a Spartan from the game and then landed him via rocketpack in London's Trafalgar Square among other Spartans.

I'd like them to pull this stunt a few more times, specifically in Seattle. I've been to many very geeky events, but I've never seen a rocketpack in action, and I think it's about time I had.
