Viral status is often given to videos that don’t deserve it. (We’re looking at you, Chris Crocker.) But sometimes, a truly deserving video will come along that really wows us. Sure, we might be biased because we’re car freaks, but that doesn’t change the fact that the “Hyundai: The Empty Car Convoy” ad is freaking epic.

The video comes at the end of a pretty cool series from Hyundai, one that touts all the advanced safety features of the all-new 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan, features like automatic emergency braking, blind spot detection, lane keep assist, and rear cross-traffic alert. This latest video, however, features all four technologies working together in driverless cars.

The stunt is performed by professional drivers who turn on advanced smart cruise control with automatic emergency braking, then exit through the sunroofs. The convoy of empty cars continues, led by a blindfolded driver, until a leading tractor trailer, which holds the ejected stunt drivers, slams on its brakes before the first car.
