Afternoon Links: Watch the Most Insane GTA V Chase Yet

Don’t act surprised that a five-minute YouTube clip of someone playing a video game has passed 678,000 views in just a few days. Did Grand Theft Auto V even still count as a video game after it earned $800 million on its release day? That’s when a thing morphs into a culture-dominating disk-based piece of art that we have to call art no matter what we think, right? So yeah, check out this wildly popular video of a shiny car going wild all over one of GTA V‘s mountains. The car’s driver throws a grenade into a helicopter at one point; John McClane would blush.
