Why stay snowed in when you can snowboard?

Viral filmmaker and YouTube star Casey Neistat snowboarded through the streets of New York City this weekend while being towed by a Jeep.

He sailed through alleys, avenues and even through Times Square while carrying an American flag. His YouTube video has been viewed more than 5 million times, as of Monday morning.

Neistat and his partner in crime, Jesse Wellens, released a behind-the-scenes video Monday of what it took to make the stunt happen.

This isn’t the first time Neistat has snowboarded through New York City. He carved through a blizzard’s worth of snow in February 2014.
