Jeff Gordon can't change a tire to save his life

June 30, 2011 | 12:26 pm

NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon stars in a new commercial, and Pepsi has supplied Fab Forum readers with a sneak preview.

Gordon, driver of the #24 Pepsi MAX / Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet, is put on special assignment in the new ad, helping to deliver an emergency supply of Pepsi Max to Daytona just in time for the Coke Zero 400 on Saturday. A Pepsi commerical for a race sponsored by Coke? What's next, the Lakers and Celtics merging?

Teaming up with Jeff is Max, the irreverent Pepsi Max truck driver. The two are at odds from the start: Jeff’s excited to hit the open road for a big road trip, but Max is less than thrilled to have a co-pilot.

And whatever you do, don't miss the part where Jeff Gordon tries to change a tire. Let's start the campaign now: Jeff Gordon for "SNL" host.
