Eh, it was alright. I like the old ones better.

What's the story on those cameras that shift angles real quick in that video? That was a pretty cool effect.

From the look of the pictures of the car after, it seems like they took a big ol load of go pro cameras, mounted them all one next to the next one on a big long stick, and used those to get the shifting shots... Or so I'm thinking... You can see it sticking out the drivers window at the end.

The old ones were cooler than this one, but it was still fun to watch.

I... don't get it.

I mean, he looks like he's having fun, doing donuts and stuff, but I don't get what this has to do with any of the things he's selling. I don't feel at all inclined to buy a hat, shoes or jacket, based on seeing this video. I'm impressed with the car, but it's not like they offer an AWD Fiesta with a bazillion horsepower.

Also, I want to see him line up in an actual race, instead of just "hooning."

Epic Meal time was awesome. The stunts were pretty cool but the old ones were definitely better. the 50 billion go pros to do the sliding shots was a cool trick.

I think you guys are taking this way too seriously. He was obviously just having fun.

It always amazes me how many people come out of the workwork to bash on him. I've seen far worse commercials.

I'd rather watch these guys drive then some stiff drifting around an empty hotel parking lot.

Only thing I find amazing is how strong they build these rally cars. It almost looks like a 1/10 RC car in some shots it's that quick and stiff.
