Much has been made about the Moose Test as of late. The evasive maneuver test popularized by Swedish safety experts is meant to simulate a driver unexpectedly encountering and attempting to avoid one of these majestic furry beasts. The test is performed by executing a split-second emergency lane change to determine if the vehicle can maintain control.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee supposedly failed the test recently in Sweden. Then it was alleged that the circumstances may have been rigged. Then it passed the German version of the test. It was all a bit confusing.

The makers of this video have apparently had enough of the Moose Test, which is why before you is a screen grab of a mock moose is in the middle of the road. That vehicle looming behind it? It's a Toyota GT86, overseas twin to America's Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ. The fate of said moose? You're just going to have to scroll down to see the how the famously well-handling rear-drive coupe performs...

      (Spoiler alert) I don't know, there were still some pretty big chunks of moose left. Needs a turbo.

      Stop with the comments stating if this were a real moose... It is *noti a real moose hence why the commercial/ad was shot in the first place. Yes, we know.. If this were a real moose things would end bad... But then again, if this was a real moose, then that car would not be drifting into it... See how annoying this 'if' nonsense is? Just stop and remember for future comments. THIS HAS BEEN AN AUTOBLOG PSA.

      Hitting a moose is like hitting a concrete block on stilts. Nobody wins in a moose-car collision.

      Why do people hurt moose if they're made of styrofoam?

      We should have a politician test. And I want to buy the car that fails everytime.

        Only if they use real politicians. I would hate to waste all that styrofoam.

      That Toyobaru sports car could probably fit under a real moose. Moose are gigantic.

      WTF! Guess this driver wouldn't have survived the crash either.

      If that were a real moose the car would be totaled and the driver in the hospital. Moose might walk away.
