Great head-on MS white and Hispanic boys and girls (children ages 8-15) bouncing on pogo sticks, college chapel building in BG. Funny TLS young white man bouncing on pogo stick, falling into decorative pond, creating splash while other pogoers bounce in BG. TLS two young white men bouncing enthusiastically on pogo sticks while crowd watches on. MS kids and teenagers jumping on pogo sticks, bouncing toward camera. VO: "For old timers, veterans of the yo-yo fad, it's just a new type of bounce. Pogo jumping hasn't much of a history, and what there is of it is wholly unverified. It's said that the first stick was made in the 17th century by the Italian Count Pogo who wanted a new toy for his son."
