Subaru take the public for a ride in the 2011 WRX STI sedan – Click above to watch video after the jump

Call us sadistic, but there's something undeniably hilarious about yanking random people off of the street and plopping them into the passenger seat of a sports car. Throw a talented race driver behind the tiller, and you've got an unmatched recipe for entertainment. Subaru has decided to take a stroll down that path with a slew of new ads designed to introduce the new 2011 WRX STI sedan to the public. The company asked rally driver Dave Mirra to shuffle a few folk around under an overpass in the 305 horsepower turbo four-door, filmed the whole thing and called it a day.

Subaru has unveiled a total of five 30-second spots with a variety of regular Joes (and Janes) riding shotgun in the winged machine. The company is calling the campaign Get More Gs, and Subaru is quick to point out that the phrase is meant to equally focus on g forces as much as that "oh geez" feeling you get from slinging the car through a slalom. We see what you did there, Subaru. Hit the jump to enjoy the videos. Now... where can we get a skull antenna topper?

      "Am I the only guy that though this dude was a BMX rider? When did he transition to rally?"

      Wut? I'm just here to stare at the girl with the huge rack.

      But yes, I've heard there are some people from skate/bmx and other extreme that went to rally and what not.

      Whoa, Whoa! wait! Dave Mirra?!?!? When did he become a professional driver? Mr. BMX is now stunting in cars professionally?

        Several years ago - I think he started driving Rally in 2007. I remember him winning the Toyota Celeb race a few years back too.

      All that's missing is some duct tape over the blonde's mouth to shut the screaming up...

      And isn't the first girl from a reality tv show?

      That first video really let's you see how much low-grade plastic was used.

      Car's interior looks fine though.

      The chick looks like Daisy from the aptly named reality series Daisy of Love.
