Little Truck vs. Giant Sand Dune

I think I can! I think I can! I think I can!

It's like a children's story come to life. 

In a video posted online by TurboRally, a 4-cylinder Toyota Hilux pickup is shown racing through the sand to meet a dune that at first looks much too large for such a small truck. 

But as the clip shows, that little Toyota has the heart of champion:

As it neared the top of the sand dune, the Hilux slowed and fishtailed:

But the little truck got a taste of victory, and it tasted a lot like sand: 

The video is a repost of a clip from last year, although it's not clear where or when it was originally filmed. 

"I don't know about you, but I think this is very impressive, considering that the truck isn't really made for off-roading, it doesn't have a lot of power, and to be honest, it's pretty old," TurboRally wrote in the description. "The little engine that could!"
