Pop-pop-pop! The exhaust of the MINI John Cooper Works I’m driving reacts enthusiastically as I let off the gas and carefully point the car to the apex of the turn, then accelerate the little car towards the short straight between turns five and six on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s road course.
It turns out that the results are pretty interesting when you combine a MINI Countryman JCW and a man in a flying squirrel suit.
To show off the capabilities of the John Cooper Works Edition MINI Countryman, the creative ad people over at MINI attached a man in a wing suit to the roof, and we all get to enjoy the heart racing stunts that ensue.
Watching a man double up as a flying squirrel is pretty impressive, even more so when he releases his tow and shoots out over a cliff to fly.
Crazy ads are nothing new for the British marque , but that doesn’t seemed to have stemmed enthusiasm to shoot more.
Watch the MINI Countryman JCW commercial below. It’s a re-hashed version of something we ran earlier this month, but there’s a lot more flying squirrel suit footage in this version.
MINI was proud to announce today that a John Cooper Works Super Production Car (SPC) captured its first FIA International event win this past weekend. Driver Abdulaziz Al-Kuwari took the checkered flag home at the Qatar International Rally, the first found in the 2012 Middle East Rally Championship (MERC).
