recent clip allegedly portraying the filming of a commercial for the third-gen 2021 model came to show.
In theory, snow makes everything easier: not only can you build a ramp out of the white stuff, but if there's enough of it on the ground, the landing might just be less scary.
Well, all the stars, or flakes, for that matter, seemed to have initially lined up for the jump of the Gen II F-150 Raptor we have here, which took place last month over in Austria.
The stunt saw vlogger Schaefchen take off and land in the performance truck, appearing to nail both maneuvers. However, as the truck bounced off and moved forward, it came across the bank of snow that had been formed on the side of the main road and nearly flipped.
It looks like the driver could've avoided the said contact. However, scrolling through the comments section of the first Instagram post below shows why he didn't do it, in spite of this stunt appearing to have been planned, with the second post showcasing some of the preparations.
"The helmet slipped down, so I couldn't see where I was going," the man explains.
Fortunately, the truck landed on its wheels, but not before giving the group of enthusiasts assembled on-site the impression it would end up crashing. And, judging by a more recent post showcasing the machine, as well as by the description below, both the driver and the truck are fine.
Oh, and while another vlogger didn't waste any time jumping the brand-spanking-new Ram 1500 TRX earlier this year, perhaps some extra preparation for such adventures may serve everybody well.
