When Ryder turned this Volvo big rig into an enormous remote-control vehicle, I thought they were gonna give us an autonomous trucking demo. Nope, it’s something way more fun to watch!

If you’ve already started watching you realize this, like most other high-budget YouTube videos, is a commercial. The idea being “our mechanics are so good can even fix something this worked-over in just 24 hours!” (Oh yeah, spoiler, sorry.)

Regardless, the barrage of attacks thrown at this semi-truck are really fun to watch, especially with the raging-angels soundtrack cranking behind it. Kinda feels like 300 with a drive shaft instead of spears.

Especially satisfying if you hate Volvos. Or, if you love them, stay through the end and watch it come back to life.
