VIDEO: Filmmaker snowboards through NYC streets to 'New York, New York'

- Filmmaker Casey Neistat, 34, is blowing up the Internet with a video he posted Sunday snowboarding through New York City to the classic Frank Sinatra tune, "New York, New York."

In less than a day, the video has reached over a million views on YouTube and Facebook.

It starts with a news clip of Mayor Bill de Blasio warning drivers to get off the streets, and ends with Neistat's crew being pulled over by law enforcement. A New York City Police officer appears to let the group go without a citation.

“Someone complained about you, so we’re just going to act like we’re talking to you," the NYPD officer says in the video -- “You guys are awesome,” Neistat replies.

Neistat is well-known for his popular Internet videos and calls himself a "YouTube filmmaker." He's also co-founder of the social media company Beme, and co-creator of the HBO series "The Neistat Brothers."

A second Youtube video shows rehearsals and how the group made the video using a drone. You can watch the viral video below.
