We love crazy promotional videos with hair-raising stunts that seem to defy gravity, and this particular spot certainly checks all those boxes. Mazda has teamed up with The Demon Drome crew to determine if its Mazda2 can successfully whirl around a motor drome.

The motor drome is essentially a cylinder about 30 feet in diameter with wooden planks that are positioned at an impossible angle. Trained men and women have traditionally used motorcycles in these stunts, but the Japanese automaker evidently thought its tiny Mazda2 would be an ideal four-wheeled replacement.

We knew the Mazda2 was nimble, but this is pretty sweet. Hit the jump to watch the video for yourself... and try not to be alarmed by the demonic-sounding backwards talk.

      I'm less impressed that the Mazda can handle the wall than am that the wall can handle the Mazda.

      Sure there are 70+ cars with more than 500hp these days, but most of them, if not all of them are considerably heavier than the super exotic you used to see a decade ago or so. 500+hp cars? So what? Now, if most of these cars were in the high 2000lbs, low 3000lbs, I'd be impressed.

      Awesome, but video effects and chops are freaking annoying.

      those few spins must have taken 10 years out of the dome's life. The planks were flexing beyond healthy, so to speak
