So Franklin comes across a magic dog who tells him about a skydiver whose stuck in a tree, so he then saves the skydiver and the skydiver asks him to join him on an extreme stunt and they jump off a helicopter? 🤔 Well, whatever it is, guess that's why I love GTA V missions because they're so random. this was such a fun mission to do. hahaha. 😂"

    "This mission was definitely at the top of my GTA V missions list. I had a blast while doing this and I especially like the motorcycle chase. I always try to go full speed when I'm on the bike cause it's actually possible to get a gold medal from hitting max speeds. 😁"

    "In my playthrough, as I go through all the GTA V missions in order, this particular mission always registers with me. It's cause I know that the decisions that I have to make, really feels like a make or break situation. SPOILER ALERT: this is the best option among the three because Michael, Franklin, and Trevor kill their enemies instead of killing each other. 👍"

    "Among the best GTA missions, I rank this the highest because of the attention to detail. It even has three different intro scenes depending on which character you decide to use. Plus, there are literally so many approaches that you could do that each of them can go in a different tangent when determining the outcome. Rockstar definitely went the extra mile with this one! 👌"
