Viral Marketing: Pepsi MAX & Jeff Gordon - Test Drive 2

Last March Pepsi had Jeff Gordon dress up in a disguise and visit a car dealership, where he pretended to look at a used Chevy Camaro. He then proceeded to take an unsuspecting car salesman for the ride of his life. The video has since received a total of 14 million views and countless mentions online for Pepsi.

Shortly after the video was released, an automotive journalist named Travis Okulski from the popular auto website jalopnik.com questioned the authenticity of the video, calling it FAKE. So Pepsi decided to pull another stunt and this time target Travis for a staged ride in a taxi with Gordon driving, disguised as an ex-convict. The result is pure comedy gold again for the Pepsi MAX campaign. The new video has received nearly 6 million views in the first 24 hours. This video is another example of how a well-executed viral marketing campaign can expose your brand to the masses.
