BMW Drifting Car Stunt Atop US Bank Tower In LA

BMW has just released this comically dramatic clip of one of their vehicles atop Los Angeles' US Bank building. The car is "drifting" on the structure's helipad, which is the highest in the world. Drifting is now considered a sport -- the goal is to turn the car so as to lose traction while continuing to drive at a high speed. While BMW's promotional stunt will seem pointless to some, the video is impressive, and our city does look rather majestic.
