In 2013, Pepsi Max and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon pranked an unsuspecting car salesman by taking him on an wild high-speed “Test Drive.” Shortly after the prank was released, Jalopnik deputy editor and writer Travis Okulski publicly doubted its authenticity. Jeff and Pepsi Max decided to go all out and prove him wrong in their newest prank, “Test Drive 2.” To try and make Travis a believer, Gordon dressed up as a cab driver, picked up Travis, and took him on a crazy cop chase.
So, just as I was able to say with total certainty that the first Pepsi Test Drive ad was totally fake, I can say with total certainty that this second Pepsi Test Drive ad is unequivocally, one hundred percent, totally, absolutely real.
Here is Pepsi Max and Jeff’s original “Test Drive” prank from 2013:
