To the MAX - prank

Can you imagine being a hard working auto sales person and then you get taken for a crazy ride by a customer.  You may be able to put on a smile but your underwear likely will have to go to the cleaners asap.  Jeff Gordon was the disguised customer here in this marketing stunt for Pepsi MAX and the 3:46 long youtube clip has been viewed more than 34 million times.
