Is travel how you “make it count”?

Travel is like life, amplified.  Your senses are heightened, experiences are vivid, and time becomes your biggest asset.  In that spirit, you can watch the inspirational video by Casey Neistat.

The story in the video was that Nike hired Casey to make a promotional film.  Instead of doing the job, Casey took the money, enlisted a buddy, and did a round-the-world trip.  Personally, I think the prank aspect is being played up for street cred.  Still, an effective viral video nonetheless.

For more “behind the scenes” details, check out this interview with the filmmaker: A million views and counting: the making of ‘Make It Count.’

    Is it just me, or is Casey a bit of a Sean Penn lookalike? Nevertheless, I liked the video. I’m a pushover for this kind of off the cuff style travel. Not so sure it qualifies for the slow, deliberate travel ethos this site promotes, but it was fun to watch.
