 Hunter's Silvia clip is just mind blowing...and this is from a guy that in our country we will never see snow ever...but this edit is so unreal, the music adds a tone of epicness....to me that is the best clip so far in 2012...

 si verdad, aunque supestamente algun dia nevo en el cerro de la muerte, pero si, Matt Hunter es una leyenda! Smile

 The same. I think that Hunter's Silvia video was something new to all of the dh/fr theme. Great video, perfect music. Too bad that it wasn't longer, liked it a lot! Smile
He must take that win!
