Turns out the Chevrolet stunt team isn't finished finding things to do with its Sonic. Not long after skater Rob Dyrdek "kick-flipped" (or barrel-rolled, whichever you prefer) a Sonic, one of the team that put that stunt together decided to take his Sonic 'skiing,' which means putting it on two wheels. Then, once on two wheels, decided he'd take a casual drive through the workshop of J.E.M. F/X, a special effects outfit in Valencia, California. Then he parked it.

The hatchback antics are in the video after the jump, this time minus Dyrdek's contortionist faces. And we're pretty sure that after one more of these oddball excursions we can start calling the Sonic "hedgehog."

      Proves nothing. Still don't want and neither does anyone else (as evidenced by the zero I've seen on the roads).

        The Chevy Sonic just came out and it's in low supply meaning it's launch was pretty successful. A 17 day supply at dealers is less than a third of the norm. http://www.autoblog.com/2011/12/21/sonic-in-short-supply-as-chevy-closing-in-on-all-time-sales-reco/

        I've already seen plenty on the roads, and if you go test drive one with a manual you'll find out just how beautiful these little boogers are to drive.

        I haven't seen many on the roads either, but I did rent one in San Francisco last month. It drove pretty well and had decent power for an inexpensive little car. The rental I drove didn't have bluetooth or Sat radio though. Would think it would be standard for a brand new model. Instrument panel is a bit goofy for me, but I am sure some will like it.

        You need to get your facts checked, GM can't keep up with the demand for these, they're pretty much the best combination of looks and performance in the B segment. Autoblog had a post not a while ago on how Chevy can't keep up and dealers only have 17 days supply

        And your anecdote proves nothing as well. Carry on.

      Now, do it without roll cage. Besides, what the hell is Master Craft seat doing in that thing? There are several companies out there that make excellent bucket seat for this kind of stuff. Chevy, what a disappointment.

      A medium sized guy had to work to get out of the car. Americans will eat this car up!

        You don't think the deeply-bolstered race seat and cage had anything to do with that?

          You'd be surprised just how effective a car commercial can be consisting of it driving down a beautiful/interesting road with a narrator talking about it's features/performance. No need for washed-up singer/actresses, dancing robots, hamsters, throwing cars off planes, performing stunts, etc etc.

      Beware of where your charitable contributions are ending up. Here in Florida the illegal aliens are lining up in droves usually breaking up family members so they can get 3-4 times as many toys, bikes turkeys etc. While they are waiting in lines they are all texting and talking on their $200. i-phones and after they reap their free harverst of gifts they load them into their late model pick up trucks with $4,000. worth of chrome wheels. Then they go home and sell off half of the gifts so they can buy drugs and alcohol. In the mean time the needy children who's parents have nothing and are often homeless get nothing because the illegal aliens hogged everything they could scam the big hearted American charitable organizations out of. BEWARE THIS IS HAPPENING ALL OVER FLORIDA RIGHT NOW.

        Dang, I thought I was the first to spot that. Yup, total BS. Still a near trick, but why lie about it when it's so obvious?

          It's a video, they did several takes. That's how things work.

        If you buy the turbocharged engine you get 6 speed manual. Good job buying an import.

      Has it been converted to RWD, or is it just a case of the differentials doing their thing?
