If Michael Bay made GTA 5 videos, this would be his magnum opus

I consider myself a collector of exotic GTA 5 (opens in new tab) videos, so please understand the gravity of the following statement: this video is my everything. It's so good. Blacksmoke Billy, who previously brought us the extreme sports of GTA 5 truck tricking (opens in new tab) and ramp-offing (opens in new tab), has outdone himself this time.

If Uncharted 3's plane scene (opens in new tab) inspired one of the centerpiece stunts of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, then I expect this flipping, spine transferring, mid-air helicopter blasting tank to re-appear in the next Fast & Furious. The best part is that it only uses minimal mods - just enough to build that ramp out on the airport tarmac. The rest is all skill, editing, and a whole lot of trial and error (Blacksmoke Billy notes in the video comments that it took him at least 20 attempts). Sometimes you have to suffer for your art.

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us!

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
