Hyundai's film documenting the completion of an early 20th century expedition has become the most viral video of all.

"Shackleton's Return" is filled with over five minutes of footage and gives the backstory of Sir Ernest Shackleton, who in 1916, was seeking to become the first person to cross Antarctica, but ran into trouble when his ship, along with his crew, became trapped in pack ice.

Shackleton scrapped his expedition plans and turned his attention to the crew’s survival and they ultimately lived. In the video, descendants of Shackleton and his crew are introduced, pointing out that had Shackleton and his crew not come back, none of them would be alive today. The video has generated 109,584,893 views.
