    BMW Canada M Powered Performance Part 2 - Drifting the 1M on the world's highest helipad

    You all may remember the awesome video BMW Canada did where they had the 1M drift through walls. That was Part I and now this is Part II. We don't know when an M owner will ever be drifting on a helipad but who cares as the video is very cool and BMW Canada certainly has gotten a lot of attention thanks to these two videos. For those curious, the building in the video is the U.S. Bank Tower located in Los Angeles. It stands at at 1,018 feet tall.

    I find it very funny the guy is wearing a crash helmet.
    Would he fall off this helipad nothing less than a parachute will help him.

    I thought it was very cool. But, the "walls" was better.

    No a lot of people are saying that but that would be some amazing CGI.

    maybe the walls were made of foam?

    Either way, this one is more feasible, but the guy probably needed a lavatory built into the seat while he was doing the donuts!Click here to enlarge

    A BMW driver with balls made of brass that spark when he runs. Or balls made of concrete. Either way, big hard balls.

    Yes, the video of the BMW 1M drifting on top of the building was 100% real

    By now you have seen the video of the 1M drifting on top of the highest helipad in the world. This video created a ton of speculation that the stunt was faked. Most of the people saying it was fake naturally came from Youtube. The driver was Greg Tracy and you can read his own blog entry about the stunt here. And remember, hitting your head against a brick wall is more productive than reading what people on Youtube have to say about anything.

    I just did some more digging on this and it looks like it was actually fake. This occurred after trying to use this video to prove to my coworker that he thinks everything is fake, even if it isn't. Fail
