The slow clap, a cliche of sports movies, has been taken to its logical conclusion - use in a commercial for buying a used car. CarMax has unveiled its 2014 Super Bowl commercial, which focuses on a man buying his "perfect" used car.

What starts out as humorous turns creepy rather quickly, as everybody the man drives past breaks into a slow clap when they see his maroon Nissan Maxima. A man teaching his son to ride a bike stops to clap, leading the child to crash. An elderly man being rescued by a firefighter claps. There's even a cameo of Rudy star, Sean Astin slow clapping. It gets better, though.

Scroll down below to see the cute and surprising ending with its follow-on, stand-alone video.
