Watch this snowmobile launch off a cliff and feel your stomach drop

This is what GoPros were invented to do: take you along for the ride as completely insane adrenaline junkies launch vehicles off of precipices. Like Brett Turcotte jumping off a cliff riding his snowmobile—and landing perfectly.

This footage is even more dramatic thanks to the GoPro's fast frame rate. Lots of frames during recording means you can slow that footage waaaay down on playback, drawing out that hang time into pure gut-dropping flight. Don't you dare try this at home—the view is just as good on YouTube, and you won't get snow down your collar. [GoPro]

The only terrible thing about these kinds of videos is the use of shitty (subgenre)rock that is generally used all the time. Apparently you can't be extreme listening to anything else.
