The Mini Countryman equipped with the John Cooper Works package is the latest diminutive to be loaded into the brand's eccentric ad machine. As if a 211-horsepower, all-wheel-drive crossover on 18-inch alloys from a brand called "Mini" weren't novel enough, we're admonished to "Expect the unexpected" as the most powerful vehicle it makes is flicked through the desert and the snow.

And that will explain the man on the roof. Well, kinda. See below for the video.

      Uh... lame. It would have been one thing if they had actually figured out a way to do the wing suit stunt that they were kinda sorta showing, but this is just stupid. The too-serious music and shirtless tattooed ending put a final big fat "fail" stamp on it.

      The car looks nice with the graphics, wheels and color combination... Style they do have. The add clearly focuses on that aspect IMO. The last bit with the guy on the roof could have been cut out, wasn't really needed or well executed I suppose either.
