This Virginian slipped down his driveway in a video that has since gone viral

It’s the latest test in balance — slipping down your ice-covered driveway without falling on the pavement.

And in that test, Virginian Tim Besecker passed.

In a viral video posted on Facebook on Tuesday by Besecker’s wife, the unsuspecting commuter walks to his driveway, dressed for work and wearing a backpack.

Despite many close calls, Besecker didn’t fall until he made it safely to the grass toward the end of his driveway.

The video has been shared more than 1 million times and comes with a warning from Besecker’s wife, in hashtag form: Black ice is real.
