After the success of Uncle Drew, Kyrie Irving's undercover, old-time basketball star (25 million YouTube views and counting), Pepsi Max placed another disguised star athlete in his natural environment to surprise an unknowing participant.

This time, it's NASCAR superstar Jeff Gordon taking a Chevy salesman out for a test drive.

Things go predictably:

1. Unlike Kyrie Irving, Jeff Gordon's alter ego looks exactly like his real self, only with a goatee.

2, Like Kyrie Irving, Jeff Gordon is a surprisingly good actor.

3. I've been recently told I'm a wet blanket when it comes to evaluating the legitimacy of viral videos, so I'll keep my opinions about this one to myself.

4. Either way, the salesman should have been suspicious when "Mike" put an unopened Pepsi Max in the cup holder. That's always a sign things are about to get nuts.
