To celebrate the launch of 2015 Golf GTI in America Volkswagen has teamed up with GoPro and Tanner Foust, Top Gear US presenter and professional drifter as well as rallycross champion, to make a series of interactive videos. The idea is to give viewers a first-hand account of how fun the GTI is carrying out everyday tasks.
Mind you, you kind of need Tanner Foust levels of driving skills to fully manipulate the GTI’s capabilities. At any rate, to make this ad they covered a Golf GTI with GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition camera, I mean they just machine gunned it, and sent Tanner out in it to do his thing.
The result is quite amusing:
“We take a lot of pride in the Volkswagen Golf GTI’s performance. The GoPro camera is the perfect way to let other people experience the rush you feel behind the wheel of the all-new Golf GTI,” said Vinay Shahani, Vice President of Marketing, Volkswagen of America. “It was a fantastic bonus that Tanner Foust, who is one of our drivers for the Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross team, was behind the wheel during the shoot. The combination of Tanner, the Golf GTI, and the GoPro cameras resulted in some thrilling video,” added Shahani.
