Reminiscent of his snowboarding New York City's streets from last winter, Neistat and a team headed to Finland for a four-day shoot to create an epic 360 holiday video.
A massive drone took a team about a year to build, according to a behind-the-scenes video shot by Jesse Welle. It's so big that at least two people are needed to carry it.
In the video, Neistat - dressed as Santa - rides a snowboard pulled by the drone, which lifts him about 20 to 25 feet off the ground above rooftops and trees, and even up a ski slope.
All this effort to create such an amazing 360 video was part of a promotion for Samsung.
Multiple cameras were placed along the routes of Neistat's ride to capture it for his YouTube audience. The crews only had a few hours of daylight to shoot each day.
Check out Welle's behind-the-scenes video, which is also pretty epic:
