Viral Video: Pepsi Max & Jeff Gordon Present: “Test Drive”

Viral Video: Pepsi Max & Jeff Gordon Present: “Test Drive”.

NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon geoes under cover to take a test drive, and the 'salesman' loses it.

Probably an actor, but very funny.

Reminds me of the time I went for a test drive of a 1980 Toyota Camry, and the salesman was a top amateur race car driver. He did a similar thing, took a right hand turn into a side street and gunned it, then did a 180 turn at the end. So much fun.

I bought the car. ;-)


Jeff Gordon Test Drive 'Prank' Commercial: Pepsi Max Ad Featuring NASCAR Star Goes Viral (VIDEO):

The L.A. Times reported that the comic video was produced by Gifted You, which is owned by Will Ferrell's Funny or Die company. According to the Independent Tribune, Brad Noffsinger, a racer with the Richard Petty Driving Experience, was behind the wheel for the stunt driving. 
For those looking for an expert breakdown of the several clues that the Pepsi ad was faked, broke down every element of the video, including the fact that Chevy never made an '09 Camaro, and that the interior shots were actually that of a 2013 model. The auto news and gossip site also tried to track down the "salesman" at the dealership in the spot only to be told he was "unavailable."
