Skateboarder Rob Dyrdek kick-flips Chevy Sonic for ad


Source: AUTOWEEK

I won't take too much of your time this morning, I'm actually leaving for London this afternoon!  (Pretty pumped about that)  Having said that, posting will be quite sparse as I'll be busy doing other things, but I hope to put something up!  The post I have for you this morning though, will certainly not disappoint.

Rob Dyrdek, a professional skateboarder and MTV star, embarked on one of the craziest stunts to date.  Combining both his driving and skateboarding skills, Rob performed a KICK FLIP with his Chevy Sonic.  For those of you that aren't familiar with skateboarding terminology, a kick flip sounds pretty much like what it does, the board...flips.  Now, imagine the thought of flipping a car!  The stunt is part of Chevrolets new ad campaign that features some more non traditonal stuff like their new hatchback driving out of a plane, as well as another one that features The Sonic rolled off a 100-foot tower with a bungee cord attached.  The stunt is extrmeley impressive, and yes, it certianly does boost the appeal of the car, but will I go out and buy it?  Probably not.  Would you?
