Homeowner Kendall Jenner threw a big party at OUE Skyspace, and with it, caution into the wind, as she bravely hurtled down the glass "Skyslide" that takes daredevils down from the 70th to the very nice 69th floor of the U.S. Bank Tower. Would you believe me if I told you this soldier Snapchatted it, too?

In the not-at-all exclusive video above compiling Jenner's Snaps from that day, we can see Jenner poorly filming the crowd dancing to "Big Pimpin'" before hopping in the slide's chamber herself (you'll have to skip ahead to about the 0:55 mark). As LAist's Juliet Bennett Rylah aptly put it, it "looks like a found footage horror movie." We can hear Jenner shrieking, "Oh my god, I hate this!" as downtown Los Angeles glitters 1,000 feet below.

TMZ reports that among the guests at the party/private Travis Scott show, held Thursday night at the glitzy observation deck on the top of the U.S. Bank Tower, were a whole cavalcade of Los Angeles legends: There was her big sister Kim Kardashian; jilted Taylor Swift ex Calvin Harris (whom the Daily Mail noted "looked a vision of happiness" as he left the party, accompanied by two bro friends "who looked in equally high spirits"); murder-suicide witness Floyd Mayweather, mystic Jaden Smith, and former UCLA Bruin/fashion icon Russell Westbrook.

While we would have loved nothing more than a crisp video of Westbrook sliding down in a Gucci fur onesie or whatever, we're instead stuck with this shoddy Instagram video of Jaden Smith emerging from the slide:

Truly inspiring, especially given that just yesterday we reported that one woman has already sued Skyslide, claiming she broke her ankle while sliding.

That definitely sucks for her, but if we learned anything from the Goo Goo Dolls, it's that sometimes you just gotta let it slide, you know?
