A commercial for Virtika Outerwear is making rounds on the Internet with some calling it the best explainer video of all time.

David Lesh, founder of the outerwear company, speaks to viewers about why the products are durable and functional while performing a number of crazy stunts.

'I started out as a professional skier. I saved up and bought this airplane so I could transport drugs from Mexico to Colorado,' Lesh jokes in the commercial's opening.

'I was sick and tired of riding for companies that made s****y, ugly, overpriced outerwear. So I took my drug money and made the best outerwear on the planet and sold it direct for half the price.'
