If you’ve spent any time on the internet, you’ve probably seen videos of denim-clad Canadian snowmobile stuntman Larry Enticer proclaiming he’s “just gonna send it” before launching his 1980s-era snowmobile off of a shodily built homemade ramp.
If you enjoy those videos, then boy do we have a clip for you. In the video embedded above, another brave stuntman gives a rare glimpse into what rural Canadians do when their bored (which is pretty much all the time, just ask my cousins). We must warn you, though – this clip features a Ford F-150 dying a brutal, albeit very entertaining, death.
In the video, our brave young Canuck approaches the large dirt jump in a junkyard-bound tenth-generation Ford F-150 XLT 4×4 with considerable speed, ready to show his friends (and the internet) what the words “full send” mean to him. The truck hits the steep ramp and launches a solid 10 to 12 feet in the air before dangerously landing on flat ground ahead of a dirt embankment.
We assume the driver was able to walk away from the Ford-branded wreckage unscathed. The onlookers don’t seem concerned about the driver’s well-being and the uploader doesn’t mention anything about him being hurt. He’s definitely lucky, though. This clip reminds us of another famous jump video involving a Ford F-150 Raptor. In that video, a Ford F-150 Raptor owner jumps the truck 90 feet before landing flat, setting off the vehicle’s airbags. The driver had to be taken away by an ambulance in that instance as well.
Even if a vehicle is built for off-road performance, like the Ford F-150 Raptor, it’s never a good idea to jump it onto a flat, hard surface. We do appreciate crazy guys like those mentioned in this article for doing what they do, though. This is essentially why the internet was created.
