    Edit: Saw a post where someone said it is obviously staged because Nascar drivers don't know how to turn right.

    Too much liability involved for the salesman not to be part of the entire bit, but I still found it funny-once.

    That was great!

    When we were buying my son a car we test drove an EVO (the car we ended up buying him) he blew through a red light & later spun out while drifting... poor sales guy.

    The dead giveaway for these type of things is the various camera angles. They would require various cameras so chances are, someone would see them, someone like the sales guy.

    Plus the sound. I am sure we have all taken video and the sound is nevr good when we are outside. if the sound is good in a commercial that is because the people are speaking into sound equipmnt like mics. Of course, how would the mics get into the car and on the lot without the salesman seeing them?

    I am sure some of us have been involed in commercial shoots or some sort of production and its always just that, a production with tons of waiting, lighting, sound checks, lots of people, trucks, equipment, cables, you name it , its there.

    One would think the salesman would have noticed a full production crew.

    Then there are the strange side roads and warehouse places. Why would a car lot be in an industrial area? Most are in areas that people actually go to.

    Do car salesman somehow not have cell phones that are capable of calling the police?
