Chances are nine out of ten when you walk into a Volkswagen dealership – or any car dealership, for that matter – you aren’t about to encounter a staff member of any particular celebrity. Tom Cruise doesn’t actually work as a Porsche salesperson, after all.
But judging from this advertisement, if you happen to choose the right Volkswagen dealer, you may just come face-to-face with Tanner Foust and Scott Speed.
Not really, of course; it’s just an ad. Autoblog shared the humorous commercial video below, which suggests that RallyCross/drifting champ Tanner Foust, as well as Formula One driver Scott Speed, have been taken on as the newest interns by one Volkswagen dealer. The ad comes along just in-time for the start of the 2015 Global RallyCross season at Fort Lauderdale, Florida this weekend.
Appropriately, both Foust and Speed will be driving for the Volkswagen Andretti RallyCross Team at the event, each in a Volkswagen Beetle GRC. Autoblog reports that Foust’s Beetle GRC will retain its characteristic Rockstar Energy livery, while Speed’s bug will wear a wrap advertising the annual Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.
Pretty wild, eh?
