You may remember Tanner Foust as a face of the sadly canceled Top Gear USA. He’s also one of America’s most prolific and the multi-talented racing drivers, having conquered Formula Drift, Rallycross and X Games. Well, with this wealth of experience under his belt, you would expect him to have some considerable driving skill.
And you would be right, as this new drifting video shows – it basically amounts to six minutes of Foust showing off coupled with the gratuitous Rockstar Energy Drink product placement.
To be fair, that isn’t giving the production’s smart execution the justice it deserves. This video is set up as the parody of the 1990s sci-fi show Quantum Leap starring Scott Bakula, and who had the ability to transport himself into other people’s bodies.
Likewise, we see Foust switching between the variety of vehicles through the magic of his golden steering wheel. We get to see him tame his souped-up Volkswagen Beetle rallycross car across the twisty mountain road before being treated to some skillful sideways driving at the speedway in his insanely powerful 700-hp Passat drift car.
There’s even some off-road action in the buggy, and the impressive show-stopping jump stunt involving the Beetle. The video below certainly lives up to its name: he really can drift anything, which makes for the thoroughly entertaining watch.
Ken Block has consistently impressed with a driving on display in his immensely popular Gymkhana series, and can he jump between six different cars simultaneously? We think not.
