They did a good job of making it look legit, it was awesome....

I'm still skeptical it was all staged though....

Eh - kinda funny. They should have let him go a little longer at the end.

Think it's staged completely, though...

1: The car is front and center to the dealership. That's customer parking or for deliveries - every half decent salesperson knows that.

2: That is not a factory cup holder. It's a Wal-Mart special stuck on the radio bezel.

3: He's asking too many sterotypically wrong used-car salesman lines. Most real ones are better than that.

4: Umm, parking brake handle? Shift lever? Key off??? If you wanted to stop a car, it's not that hard...

5: The salesperson always drives first.

6: Everyone came outside laughing.

Perhaps this guy wasn't in on it, but lots were...

Thats the only part I meant. Obvious the rest was staged.

I think the sales guy was in on it too.

Also that model didn't have a V8 in it either, kinda weird to hear that when it's a V6 and not see the badges.

staged or not. what woulda made it cool is showing Jeff Gordon actually doing the driving. Don't think it was him actually driving, sadly.

To me it's Jalopnik that's lame. Do they have nothing better to do? Some flimsy claims too. Clearly there were staged things. Who cares? Not this guy.

P.S. Those Bridgestone commercials aren't real either, but they're funny.

Wait, you mean that not 100% of commercials are real?! So, there's no Progressive store where I can buy boxes of insurance? And a snuggie isn't the only thing I can use to keep warm? affraid

I saw this yesterday.  This vid is done right!  Not as "dramatic" as the original but way better because it there wasnt any fudging in post or with separate stunt driver (allegedly).   I like it.
