Professional skier and rally driver Guerlain Chicherit attempted to beat the world record for longest ramp car jump. The result was not what he had hoped for…
I’ve been known to be a little cynical sometimes and the blurb on this video almost put me off watching it. When you already know the attempt at beating the world record for longest ramp car jump was a failure, packaging the video with “It was a record of one man confronting his own mortality, and ultimately experiencing a moment of what we can only describe as grace” sounds a bit, you know, naff.
The video itself, however, is actually quite harrowing and it is a testament to modern safety equipment that Guerlain Chicherit survived such a horrendous crash. Some days it is better staying in bed than strapping a GoPro on and attempting to ‘Be a HERO’.
