How awful are those posts on sites that just open to a video. No words really, just a giant play button. And you never really want to watch the video that second, right?
We try to spare you those posts here. But there are exceptions.
When a video production approaches true The Grand Tour production values. When a drone-cam tracks your Jeep romping in tall grass and from over water. When dual GoPro’s with different cabin angles was ridiculous but still tolerated by the talent.
When you’ve found a peachy dirt road to mimic rally speeds around corners — tail out all the way?
And when editing goes from picture-in-picture to actual cuts among multiple angles.
This on video, for the 180HP 2017 Jeep Compass, took more effort than 10 of the old format. Perhaps 50.
Check it out. A few screencaptures as yet another ultimate teaser.
