Insta360 teamed up with speedriding professional Valentin Delluc to ship Christmas cheer to the small French resort of Avoriaz. Irrespective of how Scrooge-like you could be feeling this yr, it’s onerous to disclaim the enjoyment of watching Delluc — in full Santa gear — somersaulting by way of city and grinding alongside the rooftops.

Is that this an advert selling a digital camera? Sure, but it surely’s a publicity stunt that works, displaying us one thing we’ve in all probability by no means seen earlier than at a time once we ought to all really feel okay embracing some frivolous enjoyable.

If there’s a contest for the “most badass Santa,” Delluc will get our vote. Pleased holidays!
