Show’s Over, Time for Some Fun!

Posted by: Julie Piatek

Now that the show is over, it’s time for a little fun. Just about a year ago NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon stared in a Pepsi MAX viral video.  In case you haven’t seen the spot, Gordon was disguised as a regular Joe, shopping for a car, and became a used-car salesman’s nightmare during an extreme test drive.

After the commercial aired people on the internet started to doubt if Gordon really pulled off that crazy ride.   One of the main doubters was Travis Okulski, an Automotive Journalist from Jalopnik. Gordon and fellow Jalopnik-conspirator Ray Wert decided to teach Okulski a lesson in humility. In “Test Drive 2” Gordon disguised himself as a cab driver and took the credulous automotive scribe for a “ride.” Watch here to see what happened next:
