Is The 'Small Truck Vs Sand' Scary-Fast Stunt For Real?

For some reason this VHSy video of a Toyota Tacoma ascending an enormous dune at a crazy-quick clip is popping up all over the place. When it comes to sand, you can pretty much climb anything with enough speed, but does this look legit to you? » 5/23/14 12:52pm 5/23/14 12:52pm

Toyota "didn't have room" for me at their TRD Pro party in Las Vegas last month, so we'll have to experience it vicariously through Roman Mica. He was the first non-Toyota employee to take the TRD Pros into the dirt, and he was kind enough to tape it for us. » 5/09/14 10:57am 5/09/14 10:57am
