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.
