Watch: Jeff Gordon takes reporter on wild ‘cop chase’

- February 27th, 2014

Jeff Gordon is up to his old tricks.

And by that I don’t mean winning NASCAR Sprint Cup races, which hasn’t been happening as frequently as it once did.

No, I mean he’s back to pranking unsuspecting victims.

Those of you with good memories might recall how Gordon teamed up with Pepsi Max to make a hilarious prank video last year. Remember, the one where a disguised Gordon took a car salesman for the ride from hell?

Well, a number of media types called BS on the video, saying it was fake. Travis Okulski, who writes for the car blog Jalopnik, was one of them.

I’m guessing he feels differently now.

Okulski is Gordon’s latest victim, a terrified patsy who earned a co-starring role in “Test Drive 2.” This time Gordon plays an ex-con taxi driver who decides he “can’t go back (to prison)”  and leads the (fake) cops on a high-speed chase around an abandoned warehouse.

The video is a big long but worth the wait, just to see — and hear — Okulski’s reaction. Hi-larious stuff.

And, as an added bonus, I’ve included the equally-funny original from 2013. If you haven’t seen it, enjoy. If you have, watch it again.
