Ferrari 488 GTB Joyride by Pennzoil
I’ve been seeing this video pop up on my news feed quite a lot for the past 2 days, many friends were sharing it from all over the place. Eventually, I started being curious about it and decided to make an article. This is an incredible video realized by Pennzoil about a yellow Ferrari 488 GTB going on a joyride. Simple as that. And good thing they picked a yellow 488 too, because it makes it look so much cooler at night (imho)!
The story starts with a guy taking the yellow Ferrari 488 GTB for a joyride. Going out of the pitlane boxes to an empty track at night, and then in an empty city. The name “Joyride” was well chosen, truly. The video is wonderfully made: everything in it screams quality. Incredible diversity on camera angles, a lot of dynamism and very fast-paced, just like the car. All in all, it really is a great watch: not too long, not too short. Perfect Ferrari 488 GTB Joyride !
Needless to say, this was filmed on closed roads and with a professional driver behind the wheel. Therefore attempting it would probably be the most idiotic thing in the world. That’s always the risk with online videos though, there will always be “that one guy” who will want to reproduce it. But there’s nothing much we can do to prevent stupidity.
You might wonder “What is Pennzoil”? Well, contrary to what I first thought (it’s not a team that makes high-end videos), it’s actually more logical than that: it’s a company (Pennzoil Synthetics) that produces the “most trusted motor oil brand in America”. Well, to be absolutely honest, this is the first time I hear about them. However, they definitely made it work and succeeded in doing what they wanted to do = make a viral video. All the ingredients are here: fast car, awesome video.
