Jeff Gordon Pranks Blogger with Fake High Speed Police Chase

Thursday February 27th, 2014

Last year Pepsi released an ad in which Jeff Gordon donned a disguise and took an unsuspecting car salesman on a joyride against his will. The video is funny, but Jalopnik writer Travis Okulski soon pointed out that it definitely seemed fake.

Jeff Gordon and Pepsi apparently did not take kindly to this suggestion, and so for the ad's sequel they decided to pick Okulski as their target, in a stunt that is very real.

So be careful next time before you blog about Jeff Gordon, because he just might stage an elaborate high speed police chase to make you look like a nerd in a viral video ... Crap I'm next.
