Mini training montage – Click above to view the video after the jump

Mini seems to still be struggling to talk Porsche into participating in a throw down at Road Atlanta. After a couple of clever videos and hiring a plane to buzz the Porsche North America headquarters, the pint-size brand just can't seem to talk its German Goliath into stepping into the ring. Maybe that's because Porsche thinks Mini hasn't put in the hours – the dedication it needs to be a serious contender. What Mini really needs is a solid training montage, complete with bad '80s music, sparkle filters and surly trainer.

Well, look no further. A fresh-from-the-oven video has cropped up over on Funny or Die featuring the Cooper S as it punishes itself in the pursuit of all-out motorsports glory. Don't worry, Mini head honcho Jim McDowell doesn't spend any time on screen this time. Hop the jump to enjoy the hilarity for yourself.
