This is for all the people that say that France has nothing to offer the world.

In the beautiful, karmic way that the world works, these people will now be shortly put to shame.

Candide Thovex, master sportsman and film-maker, seems to have been challenged with the biggest task so far in his career as a skier: tumbling down the grassy hills of rural France to shoot the advertisement for the new Audi Quattro car. And while you may think this is as easy as taking sweets from a baby, you may want to watch before you judge.

Here’s the actual advertisement, just in case you were curious:

Whilst the tricks and stunts themselves are undoubtedly awesome, the most humbling clips have to be the ones where we see him tumbling after a particularly big jump. Just a reminder that we’re all human and not at all perfect, but still giving it 110%. Also, how the frig did he control those huge skis on what’s probably the lumpiest stretch of land ever?!

Regardless, you smashed it, Thovex. C’etait très magnifique.

Miffed you didn’t get to see skiing in action in the frost? Have snow fear! Check out these incredible stunts by skier Mathieu Bijasson, who tests his limits by skiing in the dead of the night.
