There’s a new viral video on YouTube that gives you a very quick tour of the U.S. This guy walks across America (NYC to San Francisco) in under two minutes, rarely pausing except to admire the Lincoln Monument and Mt. Rushmore. OK, so maybe it’s a stealth ad for Levi, but it’s still pretty cool. I wish Levi would do this for more countries — I like the quick tour idea!
You can see his actual route on this Google Map, in case you can’t discern every town and city in the video. The route isn’t straight across — it starts in New York City, dips down to Washington, DC, heads north to South Dakota as its northernmost point and then south to Las Vegas, finally stopping in San Francisco. And there are lots of stops in between.
I also enjoyed this behind-the-scenes video about how they made the Guy Walks Across America video with stop-motion photography and time-lapse techniqiues.
