Casey Neistat Snowboarding Through the Wintery Streets of New York City During the Blizzard

Filmmaker Casey Neistat, his brother Dean Neistat and friends Jesse Wellens and Oscar Boyson took advantage of the incredible snowfall that dumped itself over New York City during this weekend’s Mid-Atlantic blizzard, with an amusing stunt that combined skitching, snowboarding, and skiing, all in the best way possible. Neistat held onto a line that was hooked onto a Jeep and navigated through the streets of Manhattan on his snowboard, right through Times Square, much to the amusement of sightseers, residents and fellow snow lovers alike. Things looked dismal when they heard the siren of the NYPD car pulling alongside, but it was a false alarm.

Someone complained about you so we’re just gonna act like we’re talking to you, awright?

Here are two behind the scenes videos by Casey Neistat and Jesse Wellens.
