Team Detroit Makes a Longboarding Vid for Ford, with Devinsupertramp

Don’t click on this spot unless you want to fall into a Friday K-hole of Devinsupertramp’s extreme sport videos. I have already spent many minutes grimacing at the human bungee slingshot and cringing at “World’s Most Insane Rope Swing Ever!!!” Terrifying.

His collaboration with Ford is no less nail-biting. A Ford Focus ST drives down a winding Utah road while longboarders from Devin’s crew hurtle ahead. They’re graceful and insane, because if they’re going as fast as it seems, they’d rip their skin to nothing and then get promptly run over by a Ford Focus if they fell.

Fears aside, this is a lovely end-of-summer spot, soundtracked by skater song “Carry On,” by Scott & Brendo. It’s the first of Ford and Team Detroit’s #OneTankAdventure campaign, with three more Devin-directed adventures to come.

And okay, it’s Friday. Go ahead, spend some time with tricycle drifters, too.
