The Pepsi Max ad where NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon takes a test drive has gone viral:
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, Jalopnik.com 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.”
