Ah, viral marketing. We have this modern form of guerilla advertising to thank for so many funny You Tube videos. The latest comes courtesy of Red Bull via its Red Bull Racing NASCAR team. The pit crew along with driver Brian Vickers were forced to pit in an unusual location this week when the car required a tire change outside of the McDonald's in Times Square. Hey, when a driver needs new rubber, he needs new rubber, tourists be damned. so the RBR pit crew performed a full donut swap right there on the street in Times Square. Hundreds of onlookers stood in amazement at the site of a car actually finding a space to park in Times Square, even it was for only 20.6 seconds. Follow the jump to view this NASCAR craziness for yourself. Thanks for the tip, phil!
