17 years after he put down skateboarding's first 900 at X Games, The Birdman is back for one more go. Call it a car commercial. Say whatever you want. But the plain and simple fact is this: You will never be as gnarly as Tony Hawk. Not now. Not at 48. Not ever.
Like father, like son
Tony Hawk is never one to shy away from doing an ollie over a MIni Cooper. So Birdman teamed up with rally driver and professional skier Guerlain Chicherit for a new Mini commercial. If the name Guierlain Chicherit sounds familiar, it's because he was the guy who tried to break the world record for the longest car jump (but failed pretty terribly).
In said Mini commercial, Birdman skitches a Mini driven by Chicherit at night, 50-50s a fuse box (that for some reason blows up), and then airs the drifting Mini over a large quarterpipe gap. If that doesn't make you want to go buy a Mini right this second, then we don't know what will.

Birdman just won't let it go
