Goku’s about to go Super Saiyan on his Nimbus.

A few months ago, Vine user Mo Khan turned his hoverboard into the magic carpet from Aladdin, and now Taiwanese YouTuber Yes Ranger has used one of anime’s greatest heroes to transform his hoverboard into something bigger and better than itself.

Channeling Goku from Dragon Ball Z, Yes Ranger hops on his trusty mystical cloud—which Goku uses to travel before learning to fly—and explores downtown Taipei, acting as if this is a completely normal way to travel. Which it totally is.

There are no villains around town, but he moves across sidewalks and streets, chases kids around, and lets them walk with him and play while the Dragon Ball Z theme song plays in the background. After he abandons his Nimbus and flies away, he has a huge battle to fight with someone across the water.

Luckily, his attacks take less time to charge than they do on the show.

If you’re interested in how he did it, Yes Ranger also made a video breaking down the process of turning a hoverboard into a Dragon Ball Z transportation device.

Regardless where you fall in the “are hoverboards actually hoverboards” debate, we can all agree on one thing: this is the only way to ride one now.
