Working as a professional stunt driver is one of the most popular requests we get for The List. Making it happen, however, has proven to be a challenge. It isn't as simple as crashing a Hollywood set and sticking our hosts, Jessi and Patrick, behind the wheel of a car meant for Keanu's character. Not only would that require access we don't have (not for lack of trying), but the movie studios wouldn't let us film their set or show you the scene's final cut.

In order to check this item off our list and show you the results, we needed to get creative. We decided to go into the movie-making business and produce a short film that would give Jessi and Patrick an opportunity to apply the skills they've learned so far on The List. Trading in our blogging bylines for producer credits also lets us show you how a Hollywood movie set works when there are cars, cameras, helicopters and stunts involved. Spoiler Alert: It's a little dangerous, a lotta crazy and can get very expensive.

There are two videos for you to watch. The first is the actual episode of The List that shows what it took to produce a short film and check working as a professional stunt driver off our list. The second video is the final product, our short film called The Driver. And while, yes, we do plan on keeping our day jobs, our caps must nonetheless be doffed to the show's producer and director, Graham Suorsa, who somehow managed to pull all of this off.

      That was a really cool little movie, and Jessie is a good actor! Great job!

      Favorite episode yet. Combined a bunch of previous episodes, but you didn't need to know that to enjoy it. Also, Jessi usually outshines Patrick behind the wheel, but I think McIntyre's acting chops won the day this time around. PS: [spoiler-ish] I think doctor who goes to the trouble to do this would've found a way to secure his cargo, especially since he brought the car.

      If you don't like snarky stop reading now and move on to the next post. The list. Again? More? What kinda contract do these two have? I feel like I'll be 70 and we'll be at The List 2,399. She'll weigh 176lbs and stuffed into spandex. He'll still be Iran President for Life. Can we please move on? How about Leno buys another car story?

        You do know that Leno doesn't buy all those cars on his show right? I'm not a fan of this "list", but the internet is a massive cluster of things you couldn't care less. I assume you let the world know about every single piece of article you don't like right. Just skip the "list", ignore it, read something else. Yes, the guy has a beard, yes, she's not a skeleton. So what? There is much more people over here that need to move on rather than these two guys running some decent stories.

        I was going to put up a similar comment to this. Thanks for making me feel like I'm not alone!

        Oh c'mon, you have to admit the catwoman top isn't very flattering on her little milk tummy.
