NASCAR champ Jeff Gordon took one used car salesman for the ride of his life, and the video has gone viral.  In a clip posted on YouTube by Pepsi, Gordon showed off his stellar driving skills for the unsuspecting salesman on a "test drive" in a used Chevy Camaro.  

Wearing a pretty convincing disguise, Gordon tells the salesman his name is Mike and that he drives a minivan.  But really, he's armed with a glasses cam and a Pepsi "can cam" as he gets into the 2009 Camaro.  Gordon starts the car, and immediately takes off, skidding and speeding while the salesman screams in the passenger seat next to him.

As the wild ride comes to an end, the salesman threatens to call police as he gets out of the car in a rage. But Gordon takes off his disguise and tries to reassure him, saying, "Look, I'm Jeff Gordon!"

The video, which was posted Tuesday on YouTube, has already been watched more than 1.9 million times.
