Monster Desert DriveFile this one under “just because it’s cool.”

The video you see below comes courtesy of Monster Energy drinks and features driver B.J. Baldwin displaying some serious driving skill behind the wheel of an 850-horsepower Chevy Silverado trophy truck in the middle of the desert.

Beyond the amazing driving, there is a horribly dopey plot as B.J. rescues a damsel in distress—only after jumping her vehicle as she attempts to get cell reception.
