This has gotten a lot of media attention today. Pretty cool stunt, not CGI, he really does the splits between two commercial trucks driving backwards. I found it impressive from both the driving and his ability/agility to do the stunt at 53 years old.

You can bypass the story and go directly to the stunt at 3:40

I would think there would be no way this is real.
How can they keep the trucks in-sync without computer help or something?
I don't care how well the trucks handle.

The Today show says it was the real deal but like most media you can't believe it. Needed to have a chick on a motorcycle drive under him.

I think the drivers deserve 90% of the credit for that stunt.

I'd put a a laser or sonic gap measure device and one that coordinates the advance and retard of the trucks along the road while driving and put the computer in charge myself.

Either that or trust the professional drivers to follow the lines marked on the pavement like they did. I am sure the driving was practiced and practiced until they got it perfect before putting him up there. Even then, probably had a few runs until they got it just right for the final cut.


With that being said, the stunt they pulled last year was pretty impressive also.

I saw the ad on the 6 o'clock news for the first time, today. They said it was done in ONE take. There were safety cables but still.............Holy smokes!
