The majesty and the brutality of winter is captured in awe-inspiring fashion in a new national ad campaign for RAM Trucks.

Trucks equipped with snow plows blast through six-foot drifts; helicopter crews use explosives to trigger massive avalanches. “You are the right-of-way,” intones Sam Elliott in the voice-over. “You are a 6.4 liter abominable snowman with ice in your veins.” The spot employs the tagline, “Guts.
