WATCH: YouTuber's snowboard ride around NYC is joyfully rebellious

- A well-known YouTuber defied New York's travel ban -- but made video magic -- when he strapped on a snowboard and cruised through city streets while being towed by a jeep.

The impressively shot video, which employed drones and GoPros on sticks, shows Casey Neistat swerving and gliding on his board to a remix of "New York, New York."
