Professional driver Jeff Gordon disguises himself as a dithering gentleman in order to scare the hell out of an unsuspecting car salesman in this Pepsi commercial.
An advertisement for Pepsi Max, which mainly targets the male demographic who refuses to drink sodas labelled as 'diet,' features a can with a hidden camera that is displayed within the car, drawing attention to the brand logo. With the capable Gordon pulling crazy stunts and his passenger yelling things like "you're an idiot, I'm gonna kill you," this prank is hilarious enough to garner the attention of over two million views in just two days.
Combining a crazy prank, a fast-driven sports car and a pro-driver gave this Pepsi commercial the edge it needed to go viral extremely fast.
