There’s so much to love in this video of a man driving an industrial-strength snowmobile across a lake. First of all, there’s the very notion of attempting such a feat. But this clip fast-forwards through the question of whether that’s possible or wise and skips right to fireballs.

On the one hand, it’s just a big gimmick for the increasingly brave GoPro camera. On the other hand, slicing across icy water on a heavy winter vehicle is the closest humans will ever get to knowing how Jesus felt—and that’s definitely worth watching.
