Eugene Romanovsky is selling his "best friend for 10 years," Slate reports. According to a rollicking viral video created by Romanovsky, he and his best friend have traversed the desert, climbed mountains, fled an avalanche, escaped the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park, and even traveled to the moon. His best friend is a 1996 Suzuki Vitara.

KSHB reports the Latvian visual effects artist created the video to sell the car, which he says is a "hero," a "legend," and "still sexy" at 21 years old. Romanovsky's video has been viewed more than 2.7 million times since he posted it in mid-April, and Popular Mechanics says it's a highly effective commercial: "Try to watch it and not come away feeling that this is the car for you."
