It’s totally worth it. The car company, which will have to earn its exposure through your willingness to watch the above video rather than in this copy, teamed up with French professional skier Candide Thovex to make one of the more stunning highlight reels you’ve likely ever seen.
Thovex, who is known for his awe-inspiring ski videos, starts his adventure on two skis riding down the hard red clay of a snowless mountainside.
By the time he’s done, he skis through a jungle, down a volcano, on the steps of the Great Wall of China, on ocean waves and desert sand and, well, pretty much any surface you can imagine besides snow.
It’s an inspiring watch and a smart play from our yet-to-be-named car company.
