Video: This is how you blow out 60 candles in style

The Chevrolet Corvette will be celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2013, but apparently, they’re already getting started with the celebration.

In this video, a Chevrolet 427 Corvette - the most powerful Corvette in the world, by the way - is blasting along an open road, not a care in the world. Except that it’s got a pretty cool stunt it’s about to do.

With 60 candles lined up along a corner, the 427 Corvette seemingly does the incredible when it tackles the corner without breaking a sweat while blowing all 60 candles in the process. Talk about a creative way to blow your birthday cake, except that there wasn’t any cake anywhere in the vicinity.

Nevertheless, an impressive stunt all the way around, something the 427 Corvette, with its 7.0-liter LS7 engine that produces 505 horsepower and 470 lb/ft of torque, can do without even trying.

We know their 60th anniversary is still 10-and-something months away, but videos like this makes celebrating birthdays early all the more exciting.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I wonder if it’s only a video effect. In reality, those candles couldn’t be blown in that manner.

Yes, it’s really cool how the candles were blown out consecutively.

I think all the cars can actually blow that light of the candle. Nothing spectacular about that, but it gives me an idea to have a car on my birthday and blow the candle instead of me.

Any vehicle can do that, but I don’t think they can blow those candles out consecutively like Corvette did!

Even a dump track can do that. The thing is, Corvette is small and stylish.

I think any other fast car can do that. smiley It’s a sleek performance from Corvette, nonetheless.

That was fast! I think this commercial will be a big hit and will encourage plenty of consumers. Have they already aired this video in local television stations?

They’re so creative to celebrate this way. I wonder what they’ll do at the actual date. Bust 60 wine bottles, eh? Kidding. For the record, I finally saw why Corvette’s worth it, with that engine.
