Goodyear uses the old "surprise gymkhana road test with stunt driver" routine
So when Goodyear wanted to show off the finer attributes of its Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season tire, it grabbed Ben Conrad, director of Ken Block's last two Gymkhana videos, to choreograph some shenanigans. A Goodyear tire store in California was used as bait – an actor posed as a salesman who got his fellow store helper, professional stunt driver Danny Downey, to take customers for a little demo in a BMW.
We don't know what the conversion rate was, but there were probably a few tires sold that day. Have a look below to watch the videos.
