Candide Thovex makes an Audi ad well worth watching.

I wonder how much of that was CGI and how much was him on specially adapted skis. If it was all CGI then kudos to the people who did the segment where he skis through the tall crops.

Candide Thovex: That's the best name I've heard since Sierra Quitiquit.

That reminded me of the sensational JP Auclair video from a few years ago -- https://vimeo.com/32863936.
These guys make it look so graceful but what they do is not much less dangerous than wingsuit flying.

There was a "Family Feud" takeoff onn Saturday Night Live aboiut two months ago that also dealt with the idea second wives.

One family was a man and his second wife and stepchilren and the other one was his ex-wife and children and stepfather. The host is surprised at the start. One person switched sides near the end.

Most farmers wouldn't appreciate some dude skiing thru their crop.

I wonder how many stunt men they had to kill before Thovex did it right.

Always liked Quattros. Bought my first one 28 years ago, and sold my last one last year, but looked at a nice used one this fall, so expect that I will ultimately get one again.

Positively Griswoldian. But his(?) names sounds like a treatment for an STD medication they want you to ask your doctor about.

CGI has ruined good stunts. I liked the Jackie Chan stuff way more than Matrix style stunts, but at least The Matrix had a solid plot reason for denying physics.
