Pepsi Jeff Gordon Test Drive Video Was Fake?

Source says Gordon performed none of the driving

A video was making the rounds recently that was supposed to be NASCAR racer Jeff Gordon scaring the crap out of an anonymous salesman at a used car dealership. The video was certainly entertaining and looked real at first glance. However, Jalopnik reports that there were some things about the video that seemed off.

The first thing is that the sticker on the window of the car says at the 2009, but inside the vehicle it is all 2013 complete with navigation. One of the other curious things about the video came from the fact that it had a bizarre cup holder sitting on top of the navigation system. I guess were supposed to assume the man lurking around the car in the video before the test Drive begins placed that inside.

The real evidence that Jalopnik cooked up comes in and claim that it was able to contact someone on the set during filming of the stunt to confirm that everyone involved was an actor. The source went so far as to say that Jeff Gordon didn't actually do any of the driving. This inside source claims that a race driver named Brad Noffsinger did all the stunt work for the ad.
