    Camera man was probably telling the pilot "get me a bit closer will you?" all throughout the event, eventually the pilot was like "fuck you you want to get closer? I'll get you closer!"

    That man has both more skill, and bigger balls, than I am likely to ever have.

    The Chopper is in WAY more danger than that rally driver. Flying that low is crazy

    If I was that rally driver, I'd probably drive of the road gawking at the helicopter pilot being so awesome.

    Yes, but how did you film the fancy flying helicopter flying fancily filming a rally car?

    This reminds me of the Forza Horizon events where you race a flying stuff.

    Rally racing really is the best racing. I dare any of you to argue otherwise.

    PS. I also enjoy other types of racing, but rally is just so diverse and unique.

    This is a pretty cool skate vid, but skip to about 6.25 for crazy helicopter action

    No don't skip, watch the whole thing, it's ridiculous

    How distracting would that be?! For both drivers..

    Makes me appreciate the true skill level of what's going on here

    It's always funny when the filming crew is doing something more dangerous than the dangerous people they're filming. Those guys that ski backwards and Bear Grylls' film crew come to mind...

    I think i'd rather be in the chopper, that looks thrilling!

    Also dangerous.

  • AccordionORama

    It's pretty impressive engineering that the helicopter has enough lift to carry the pilot's balls.

  • IAmThePulloutK1ng

    I wasn't really paying attention, so I read the title as "Fancy Flying Car..." and then just clicked the link.

    When the .gif started I was thinking in my head, "Well, I guess you could call a Helicopter a Fancy Flying Car... Unless this other car is going to pull some really slick shit!"

    Then the .gif ended.

    They should hire a crew to film the helicopter filming the rally, it could end up being another sport...
