These R/C Cars Drift So Much Better Than You Ever Will

Drifting R/C cars isn't a completely new pasttime, but there's still something magical about watching a trio of R/C cars go flying off a jump — sideways. It's everything you ever wasted your childhood trying to achieve, but done by grown-ups with far more skill.

The video was filmed by the Kuma Films team at the WARU circuit in Yokohama, Japan. The actual drifting video is great, but the behind-the-scenes footage is what makes this great — I'll never get bored of watching an adult with a Steadicam rig chasing a remote-control car.

His legs look like something out of a silent slapstick film.
