car salesman in Pepsi video

The Oakland Press (Michigan), by Karen Workman

Original Article

Posted By:Mobyclik, 3/15/2013 7:49:52 AM

Pepsi´s video of NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon pulling a prank on an unsuspecting car salesman is going viral, racking up more than 1.4 million views since being uploaded Tuesday. Gordon, a champion NASCAR driver, disguised himself for the video and pretended he´d never driven a powerful car before, then gives the car salesman the test drive of a lifetime in a Camaro.

Comments:
Not political, but funny as heck and a Friday morning eye-opener! (Volumn ON.)

I thought it was one of the funniest things I´ve seen . I´ve watched it a number of times since Tuesday and still wonder how the poor salesman lived through it. I thought he was going to have the ´big one´.

From what I´ve read the past few days, the video is staged. The cup holder is not standard equipment, and the can is where they "hid" the camera.

Video is still good, but fake.

There´s no way that Pepsi and Jeff Gordon would dare to pull this "prank" without the saleman being in on it. There would be a very good chance that the guy would, as #2 said, have a coronary. That would make it one great ad that carried a multimillion dollar price tag...at the very least.
Great ad, though - I couldn´t stop laughing.

YouTube post now fesses up that this is basically a ´reality´ ad -- scripted to look like it´s unscripted. The salesman was not unaware.

But it´s still an outstandingly fun commercial. I´ll probably watch it a few more times before it gets stale.

#12 - try using google or wiki to find out basics about a name you don´t recognize, before you embarrass yourself in front of everybody. It´s almost like someone saying "Who the heck is Eli Manning?" or "Who the heck is Kobe Bryant?"

(Hint: Jeff Gordon´s been among the top, top stars of NASCAR for over 20 years -- and car dealers across the country tend to recognize those guys.)

His driving was much better than the guy who flip his car on I-35 in Austin------he took out at least 16 Brand new Hyundai vehicles which were parked at the front of the dealership--his car flipping over them. The damage his flip didn´t do, a massive light pole he hit did the rest. Estimated $700K damage at first glance. Search for KTBC TV,KEYE or one of the Austin,Tx. TV stations.
Oh yes, the driver of the flipping car apparently was capable of leaving the scene and cops were searching for him.

U.S. Freezes Putin´s Netflix Account

WASHINGTON—In what was described as a major ramping up of sanctions, Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Tuesday that the United States had frozen Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Netflix account, effective immediately. “Unless and until Mr. Putin calls off the annexation of Crimea, no more ‘House of Cards’ or ‘Orange Is the New Black’ for him,” Mr. Kerry said. “The United States will not stand by and reward the annexation of another sovereign nation with a policy of streaming as usual.” While all of the sanctions Mr. Kerry announced on Tuesday were Netflix-related, he warned Mr. Putin that

Jewish community leaders in South Florida say they are growing frustrated with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) over her conflicting statements regarding a bipartisan Iran sanctions measure in the House. Following a Washington Free Beacon report detailing her efforts to block a House resolution backing new sanctions on Iran, Wasserman Schultz has told her hometown press that she is open to new sanctions, while telling D.C. reporters that she opposes them.(Snip)Other Jewish leaders said that Wasserman Schultz’s staff has alternately mocked the Free Beacon and lashed out at its reporters.

Two ships broke free Tuesday from the Antarctic ice that had trapped them off the continent´s coast. Cracks in the ice allowed the Russian research ship Akademik Shokalskiy to escape the ice field where it had been stranded for two weeks, Australia´s Maritime Safety Authority said. The Chinese icebreaker Xue Long, which had gotten stuck in the ice during an attempt to extract the Russian ship, broke free about an hour later, officials said.

Barack Obama is either the most inept president ever to sit in the White House or he is an enemy of the Republic. For the last 10 years, I have watched this man´s uncanny rise to the pinnacle of power and vacillated between those two choices. I have come to the conclusion that ideology trumps inexperience. His ego is so massive, and his leftist beliefs so strong, that he is willing to throw our country under the big international bus. Let´s review our Middle East policy since Obama took office. He made it his top priority to go to the

PASCO COUNTY -- Detectives in Pasco County have made an arrest in the home invasion shooting that happened on Friday.They say 18-year-old Ryan Mills was taken into custody after finishing treatment at Bayonet Hospital for gunshot wounds he suffered during that armed robbery. Detectives say Mills and another man busted into a Land O´ Lakes home brandishing a fake gun. Turns out, someone in that home had a real gun and opened fire on the two men, shooting them both. The sheriff´s office is still investigating the incident and tells us the other suspect will be arrested once he is released from the hospital.

Four and a half years in office the president is still in campaign mode delivering speeches to handpicked audiences including high school kids who haven´t a clue as to what the heck he is talking about.(Snip) Instead of a president trying to build confidence, we have not a great communicator but a great divider who is preaching class warfare and hatred that is like throwing a match into the proverbial gas tank. Instead of providing calm and reason and confidence Obama in his speech predicts violence...

FBI plan puts our privacy at risk

We live in an age of surveillance. Right now, more information about us is available to more entities faster and easier than ever before. The FBI has been floating a plan to require all client-side communications software — be it voice, video, or text — to include mandatory backdoors that can be activated by law enforcement bodies to silently eavesdrop on any traffic coming in or out of that program. This will allow authorities to circumvent message-level encryption, which has stymied their current efforts.

MADISON, Wis.--Another year, another campaign. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is gearing up for re-election next year, his third race in four years. But the Republican’s courting of out-of-state donors and conservatives, his plans to visit Iowa this week and his refusal to say whether he would serve out another full term if elected suggest he might be seeking a much bigger prize — the presidency. Not that he will openly acknowledge as much.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.

The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
