VW Strapped Dozens Of GoPros To a New GTI For A Stunt-Tastic Choose-Your-Own-Adventure

This makes running everyday errands look epic.

Say, just for the sake of argument, you had a few dozen GoPro cameras lying around, a new car, some deserted streets and some time to kill. What would you do? In a perfect world, you'd probably do just what pro stunt driver and Top Gear host Tanner Foust did to help promote the new Volkswagen GTI.

The carmaker, agency Deutsch LA and director Jason Zada outfitted one of the new 2015 models with an array of GoPros and set Foust loose on an epic version of everyday chores like picking up milk, but faster and with, y'know, waaaay more donuts.

Thanks to the cornucopia of cameras, as it plays you can choose to watch the video from a few different perspectives. The brand is also teaming with Motor Trend on a video series starring pro drivers doing what they do best in places like the Redwood Forest, Santa Monica Beach and downtown L.A., with episodes launching online throughout this month.

You might not be willing to wear a helmet in your car or able to drive like Foust, but you could probably get some mellow footage of your own neighborhood with the GoPro VW is giving away to anyone who buys or leases a 2015 Golf GTI in June.

  • Having been a VW owner for a long time. Let me tell you something about the company. 1) You're either paying an arm and a leg for the top of the line, or you get a barebones vehicle for a midrange price in a slightly more impressive package. They are constantly 4-5 years behind the curve in cabin-tech/in-dash features. Wow heated seats and a crappy touch screen that does nothing. Oh got low tire pressure? Can you guess which tire it is? Yeah it doesn't tell you. slow clap User Experience, ever hear of it? . 2) Their customer service is just ok. Their waiting rooms are whatever, and wait times are ridiculous. 3) Their dealerships over charge for everything. Yes, you can haggle with them. I had a LTP issue several times before I took it in to them. They had no problem asking for 3x what it cost to have a tire patched. My car is a apparently a nail/debris magnet. I believe it's cursed. 4) Gas milage is only slightly better than it was 6 years ago. 5)...
