Jeff Gordon prank gets 17 million views on YouTube
Jeff Gordon recently did a commercial for Pepsi Max where he disguised himself and heads to a used car dealer. After talking with a salesmen, the disguised Gordon shows his interest in a car he'd like to test drive.
After acting like he doesn't know how to drive too well, Gordon slammed on the accelerator, burning out the tires and scaring the used car salesmen half to death. While Pepsi Max did their part to doctor some of the footage, considering it is a commercial, they used a stunt driver for certain shots, Gordon said he had fun and still laughs when he sees the video.
"When I did that, I knew I was putting myself out there quite a bit," Gordon said. "That's sort of unfamiliar territory. You look at yourself and you go, 'OK, I'm either going to look really dumb here or this is going to be a hit and people are going to laugh.'"
The video was put on YouTube and has since racked up more than 17 million views.
