    Oh man, did he ever plead, just like a little girl! Not that I would have done any better.... Cool spoof.

    Yeah, I'd be right there with him. I don't think it would actually occur to me that this guy has some serious handling skills.

    Too busy panicking to realize that he's not dead yet. :)

    I presume the "cop car" was a fake—otherwise, wouldn't it be illegal for real cops to act out a chase? No, not illegal, I guess, but not kosher, either.

    It was filmed in the Charlotte area. They are pretty serious about NASCAR there and I don't think a request like that would be rejected by law enforcement.

    There was a disclaimer at the 2:58 mark that Jeff and the "cop" were professional drivers on a closed course. Maybe the cop car was driven by Jimmie Johnson. It being a Pepsi ad, though, I'm pretty sure it wasn't Tony Stewart, Danica, or any other member of the "Coca-Cola racing family."

    I missed that. I sure hope they added "Don't try this at home, moron!"

    Actually, even better. It says don't try to run from cops.
