UK street riding sensation Danny MacAskill is enjoying a meteoric rise to fame. This time last year he was unheard of outside of trials circles, but after a hit video on YouTube he went on to star at BikeRadar Live, in a music video and in an advert for a jobs site, and now he's fronting a campaign for Volkswagen.
In the ad for the new VW Golf Estate, Danny Mac pulls some of his trademark jaw-dropping moves while cruising through the streets of Lisbon in Portugal.
Although a series of buttock-clenching drops and backflips fail to faze him, the minute-long clip ends with him being chased out of the car by a humble wasp. Check out the clip below:
