Who needs GTA when you can watch the real thing? A viral video that’s currently doing the rounds on social media shows a bumper-crunching compilation of police chases – which illustrates how brave cops put their lives on the line every day.

The amazing footage lasts nearly 15 minutes – and while it takes a while to get going, it’s worth the wait if you stick with it.

Our favorite is the cute kid who survives a car-jacking and a high speed pursuit, emerging wearing his PJ’s and holding a cookie and teddy bear!

The compilation originally hit the web a year ago but it’s enjoyed a resurgence on social media over the last few days.

Watch and enjoy.
