Toyota Camry SE - Toyota Camry Thrill Ride - (2013) :60 (USA)

A Toyota Camry. Not the most exciting automobile, is it? Well you're wrong, at least that's what I gather from this demonstration idea that turned a short drive in a Camry into a roller coaster type ride worthy of Magic Mountain. People are thrilled to be swooshing up, down, sideways and in - oh my - reverse. Looks like it was a fun ride with a "professional driver, do not attempt", but better still are the genuinely squee-surprised reactions from people who did not expect this. Everybody say weee!

I can't even tell you how much I love the woman who when she spots the tunnel they're going to drive through, blurts out a "are you serious!?" Everyone, duck! This stunt is crazy.

Judging by this tumblr, someone else likes the genuinely squee-surprised reactions, too.
