Audi Gets Jiggy With Snake Canyon

Remember Evel Knievel? Remember how he kinda sorta tried to jump the Snake River Canyon? Did the parachute on his Skycycle slip? Did he freak out on takeoff and release it while still on the exit ramp? Who knows? Audi, the luxury division of Volkswagen, will (force me to) relive that moment (along with a sudden rush of images from early Johnny Carson shows, bad haircuts and double-knit sports jackets) with a new viral vid in which its new RS 5 sportscar attempts the same jump in the same spot. It's a very cool video actually, and almost makes it seem possible, except there's no way. Judge for yourself, or wait for the next installment, since it ends with a cliffhanger: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SFiJGJ3EFMY
