Don’t worry, no McLarens were harmed in the filming of this video

The video itself is about as clickbaity as it can get. If the title “OFF ROADING MY MCLAREN 720S... i regret destroying my car” doesn’t clue you in, perhaps the thumbnail hinting at a destroyed engine will. To be honest, the title definitely got us, and we sure did watch it. After all, who doesn’t want to see some overly wealthy ass off-road a car with 4.2-inches of ground clearance? It’s not something most of us would do, and that’s the beauty of it. However, as it turned out, this video is intended to be an advertisement for Ceramic Pro, an exterior coating that protects automotive paint.

The video was uploaded by Alex Choi, and we’re not sure if it’s actually an official ad or not. If it’s not, then I have a feeling someone just muscled themselves into an advertising job. Back to the point at hand, the near-7-minute video is downright awesome, featuring a number of stunts, amazing camera angles, and some pretty hardcore dirt-track racing with the aforementioned McLaren 720S.

As much as I like the Fast and Furious franchise, I have to admit that this long advertisement is certainly better than that last trailer for Fast and Furious 9, and to be honest, the action scenes might be better than the last three movies combined. That said, go ahead and check out what could end up being the coolest automotive advertisement of 2020 below.

Robert has been an auto enthusiast his entire life. He started working cars at a young age, learning the basics from his father in the home garage on the weekends. As time went on, Robert became more and more interested in cars and convinced his father to teach him how to drive when he was just 13 years old. Robert continued working on cars in his free time and learned as much as he could about engines, transmissions, and car electrical systems, something that only fed his curiosity more and eventually led him to earn a bachelors degree in automotive technology with a primary focus on engine performance and transmission rebuilding.  Read More
