Poor Steve looked like he was gonna poop. That was an awesome ride-along!

I dislike Jeff Gordon as much as anyone from Talladega, but that's damn funny right there! It was feeling kind of fake until he started dropping expletives all over the place. Glad they didn't use JJ or I'd have been rooting for a rollover.

I hate the Busch brothers but it would've been funny to see them droppin' F bombs on the test drive.

Shouldn't this commercial for Pepsi have a plug or sponsored link tag?

Lucky for the car dealer that it wasn't JJ considering the various idols and voodoo unleashed to wreck him when he goes fast.

Seems more like a Camaro ad. I don't see why Pepsi would advertise like this, but then again I don't watch Nascar.

/the salesman had to have been an actor because things could have gone south quick if he tried to be a hero.

Yep. The car that swerved out of his way was just too convenient.

Not saying that car dealing doesnt leave people in the greatest of shape sitting around eating doughnuts all day and waiting to pounce on anything crossing the lot, but if and its a big if this was real who is liable for his heart attack or ruptured plaque, and ptsd

Funny as hell, but I'm almost positive "Steve" is wearing a mic (wide shots where they are on opposite sides of the car sound as clear as anything else)

Nice try, Pepsimitter, but I wouldn't watch that with a ten-foot pole.
 
2013-03-13 01:09:06 AM
Liking this because I've wondered what a prank like that would look like!
 
2013-03-13 01:12:59 AM
if nascar courses were like that, id be a huge fan

instead, they race in a circle.

so meh.


but that jeff gordon seems like a nice guy.

Fake or not still a good and entertaining commercial.

I think as long as the dealer is not in on it, then they can set it up as much as they want.  Im not at NASCAR fan by any stretch but I wanted it to be real in some sense.  His reactions seemed genuine, or he is a magnificent actor.  My first thought was, "can someone who just drives in circles handle a car that well?"  With what appeared to be an automatic, no less.

stiletto2: Funny as hell, but I'm almost positive "Steve" is wearing a mic (wide shots where they are on opposite sides of the car sound as clear as anything else)


Because the guy setting up the car while Jeff Gordon & "Steve" went inside to sign papers didn't do squat?

/whar crashcar whar?

Salesperson was a twat.
 
2013-03-13 01:24:40 AM
ok, that was awesome.
 
2013-03-13 01:27:26 AM
The kiddos over at Jalopnik already highlighted all the clues that it's fake, from the mislabeling on the windshield to the custom items in the car that wouldn't have been in a car for sale etc etc.

Not a car dealer, not a hidden camera trick. If you enjoyed this I have a Kyrie Irving Pepsi commercial to show you.
 
2013-03-13 01:38:24 AM
Seriously, the trip up and along the abandoned loading dock wasn't a dead give away to the guy that this was staged?  And the bladder-voiding, bowel-emptying scream @ 2:50 gets funnier each time I hear it.

I used to hate on NASCAR all the time for similar reasons until I saw this segment on Top Gear where Richard Hammond actually drives one (I wish I could find the entire segment because it's worth watching). It takes a lot of skill and guts to drive at 200 MPH when you're inches from other cars on all sides through steeply banked turns in a car that has relatively tiny brakes. I still think it's mind-numbingly boring to watch, but I'm thoroughly impressed by the drivers.

i dislike jeff gordon almost as much as i did dale earhardt sr but that is a funny ad.

csb, around 1990 i went to test drive a 5.0 mustang lx that had a boss 302 package, since i was only 19 at the time i needed a parent to ride along with me and the salesman. my mom came along. long story short, driving through downtown asheville the salesman says go ahead and get on it some. if you know asheville, around aston park my mom was going nuts. she was scared to death and the salesman loved it. i didn't get that car but in march of 1992 i got a 5.0 GT a month before i turned 21.

Most of you guys must spend your time pissing in everyones good times. How does anyone stand you when all you do is criticize and crap over every little thing that is entertaining?

So what if its fake or real or anything? Pull the sticks out of your arses and try and enjoy life a little.


/everyone else, high fives.

Who cares about NASCAR?  I'm just sick of advertisers constantly trying to f&cking trick me into watching their shiatty commercials.  Which is what the linked video explicitly is.  The title even says it was created by and for the Pepsi Max product, and they have their Twitter hashtag in the description in a pathetic attempt at making their commercial go viral.

FARK! Its where we learn to hate commercial crap and embrace music everybody else never heard of!
Where home juiced vegetables you cant pronounce are better than Pepsi.
And where hipsters are "in" and follow the hipster coolbook.

Your house must be one giant billboard on the outside, with bus stop posters as interior wallpaper, and jingles for used car dealers playing non-stop over the radio at all times.  I'd bet you don't wait for telemarketers to call you during dinner, you just schedule weekly conference calls with all of them, whilst signing the papers for another time share and inviting a door to door magazine salesman in so you can give him a foot massage.

Well.. kinda. Sorta.

He does in the way that anyone who shells out cash for "The Richard Petty Experience" drives one. Close enough, but I really wish he would've gotten to try his hand at a full powered car. That would have been really entertaining.

Yes its exactly like that

My house is the slippery slope example of what happens if you do not follow the hipster code of ethics and attack big soda every time you see an ad . Don't be oppressed like me. Live angry but free of Pepsi ads

you ever see a cup holder in that position on a camaro?
 
2013-03-13 03:01:14 AM
Convincing actor as the car salesman - he has the right level of sleaze and looks pretty freaked out a few times. I know it's faked but maybe some of those reactions are legit?

They probably told him "Jeff is going to drive fast. We're not going to tell you exactly where he's going or what he's going to do when he gets there, so react as naturally as you can."
 
2013-03-13 03:25:43 AM
Not saying it's not fake, but the road clear of (non-professional) drivers or the cupholder are basic preparations that a company like Pepsi would prepare for beforehand. The dealership was probably prepared for this but it doesn't mean the particular salesman had a clue what was going to happen.
 
2013-03-13 03:38:08 AM
100% fake. No company as big as Pepsi would ever take the risk of being held responsible for that chubby's heart attack. Not to mention he would not be so pleased at the end to "do it again." More like "Hell no, LAWSUIT AND JACKPOT."
