Racing driver terrifies car salesman
A video of an undercover racing driver terrifying a car salesman by putting a sportscar through its paces on a test drive is going viral online.
The clip of Nascar driver Jeff Gordon's wild test drive prank has notched up an incredible 5.2 million views on YouTube in just two days.
Gordon donned a fake goatee beard for the stunt so that he would not be recognised by the salesman as he checked out a high-powered Camaro sportscar.
Telling the salesman he fears it would be " way too much car for me", he is invited to give it a test drive with the immortal words "the way to make you comfortable would be to put you behind the wheel".
Gordon, playing his role to the max, starts his test drive hesitantly as salesman Steve tells him: "It's got some power, so just get a feel for it."
Gordon then floors the accelerator, shooting off at breakneck speed and throwing the car around corners, narrowly missing other cars, as a hidden camera catches Steve's shocked reactions.
As the test drive ends, Steve is threatening to "call the cops" until Gordon rips off his face beard and tells him it was all a stunt for Pepsi Max.
Many viewers have questioned whether or not the video was staged but another replied: "It was cool, I liked it, don't care if it was or wasn't fake!! Still funny as hell."
what do you think?
this is an advertisement Orange !!!
The salesman could have had a heart attack and also was the car driven round ordinary streets because there could have been a really nasty accident with an innocent person being killed. No doubt it will appeal to boy racers.
it also appeals to middle aged women-don't be so WET woman!!!
emma - I'm not middle aged yet but I suppose old women like yourself go through a phase of trying to recapture their youth. Sad really. By the way It's nice getting wet sometimes if you get my drift.
Pmsl.great comeback valerie

I completely agree with you Valerie. X

Shaun stop picking on valerie because of her problem its not her fault shes incontenent.its not very nice my freind gets it a little and she gets very embarrassed about it.
Eh jane im joking valerie knows this .read the conversation again.i see one of my comments has for some reason been censored that hasnt helped.
No i think its my comment thats been removed.i think youve got the wrong end of the stick.
Im joking jane.
Sorry im still not with it.
I think we all need some Tena Ladies. That will definitely help with the wetness :-D
Fake or real the salesman's face is a picture though I would sympathise with him
I hope they're gonna pay for a new set of tyres now! Must have ripped them to shreds.
As valerie questions, id like to know where hes driving so fast
Having now seen the video it looks like one of those tracks for learner drivers.

You can stop the phone doing that jane in the setting section..itsmore of a nuisance than a help isnt it.
