A viral video featuring a new ad for Pepsi swept the Internet on Wednesday. In it, Jeff Gordon supposedly goes undercover to buy a car. Walking onto a lot, he asks a salesperson whether he can test drive a 2009 Camaro. Then he gives the terrified salesman the test drive of his life. You can watch it all above.
Problem: Despite what most news outlets reported, the whole test drive was staged. The salesman is an actor. It wasn't an actual hidden camera look at a "Candid Camera" style prank.
The video was produced by Gifted You, which is owned by Will Ferrell's Funny or Die company. There are a few other problems with the video, as noted by jalopnik.com.
