Way cool, if it's real. Lots of people left comments on YouTube saying it's a fake, CGI and all that, that the wings would have to be huge to get any lift, etc, etc. I'd still like to believe it's real. Wouldn't we all love to have that rush!

Unfortunately, this appears to be a very well-engineered hoax - see 'Human Bird Wings' Video | Man Flying Like a Bird | Viral Video a Hoax | LiveScience
