I really wish they did this for real. Instead it just pisses me off.

The new Camaro didn't come out until MY 2010. Supposedly that's a used 2009?
Cup holder mounting? Coke can doesn't jostle at all with the driving, jumps, etc.
Salesman has to make a copy of his driver's license to make a test drive. Never seen a dealership where the salesman does not handle the DL. Did they make a fake ID for his alias? (felony)

Pretty ridiculous test drive course.

If you are going to make it fake go all out. All they did here is half ass it.

Cleverly staged. I wonder if the "salesman" was in on the gag as well.

"Salesman" was an actor. Complete setup start to finish, Jeff Gordon didn't even do the driving. Its kinda funny I guess, just super cliche.
