This GTA 5 video shows you the magic of semi truck tricks

Just when you thought every possible weird thing to do for fun in GTA 5 had been covered, along come trailer tricks: disconnecting a truck trailer at high speed then using C4 to send it sailing back onto your trailer hitch (preferably over a bridge or other low-hanging obstacle). The latest extreme electronic sport is both introduced and perfected in this new video from prolific GTA YouTuber BlackSmoke Billy, with help from a few key mods.

The video starts off with a beautifully executed 10-4-good-buddy flip in slow motion, heads downtown for an astounding 360 Smokey, and finishes off with a nail-biting Bandit wall ride. You really have to admire the level of athleticism on display here, even if trailer tricking probably won't get its much-deserved Olympic recognition until Tokyo 2020 at the earliest.
