The NYPD issued an official travel ban on New Yorkers over the weekend and threatened to arrest anyone crazy enough to drive through the storm. Which, of course, sets the perfect scene for YouTuber Casey Neistat’s next viral video.

Neistat took to the snow-filled streets of NYC to deliver what can only be called a spectacular display of rule breaking… and snowboarding skill.

The best part? The NYPD does, in fact, show up to ruin the party, but allows the snowboarder and the Jeep Wrangler towing him to carry on.

The video, uploaded Sunday, has already amassed almost half a million views.
