Re: test drive?

I think its done what it was intended to do...all the internet and news people are going nutz complaining its fake. Chevy and Pepsi are just sitting back and enjoying all the free publicity.

Re: test drive?

From what some insiders told me.....Pepsi and dealership were of course in on it. But Saleperson was not told until after the ride. They really obtained the chatter about this they were looking to have.

Even if he was an actor, doesn't mean he was necessarily acting at that time, he may have been genuinely scared out of his mind.

Re: test drive?

That's possible. In fact how many cuts was he actually in? They may have added to the overall video with sections he wasn't in. I still say it's doing what it was intended to do. I showed Lynn at SMB the video today and I've never heard her laugh so much. No matter what, it is a funny video. If Pepsi would have used that video for the Super Bowl ads, it would have been the best commercial by far.
