Tony Parker

INSANE $5,000

Jet Pack Ride

7/7/2011 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rich people have the BEST toys ... like NBA star Tony Parker ... who dropped $5k in St. Tropez today to strap on a water-propelled jet pack and ROCKET himself across the Mediterranean Sea.

Parker paid €3,500 (roughly $5,025) ... to rent something called a JetLev -- which uses ocean water to propel the rider into the air ... as if he/she were flying on a jet pack. 

We're told Parker spent several hours on the water ... and also spent some time hanging out on a really expensive yacht ... because he's rich ... and that's what rich people do.

Fun Fact: Today would have marked Tony and Eva's 4th wedding anniversary.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Way cool. Now don't go flying into the rocks or something.

We were all promised in the 1950's that everyone would have a jet pack by year 2000. Its 2011 and I want to know where are our jet packs!

What an idiot. You can rent them in Miami for $250 for an hour. I guess money really can't buy you brains!

I'd rather have a ride on Eva Longoria than a jet pack ride.
