(WJBK) -

It's a car salesman's worst nightmare, and great publicity for Pepsi.

Pepsi Max sent NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon undercover for a test drive at the unsuspecting dealership.

Gordon was disguised with glasses and a beard and was virtually unrecognizable.

The nearly four-minute video features the former Sprint Cup champ racing through the streets in a 2009 Chevy Camaro as his unknowing passenger holds on for dear life.

"You are liable for any damage to the vehicle," yells the salesman as Gordon peels through a parking lot.

"You alright, Steve?" Gordon asks. "Oh, you're idiot, I'm gonna kill you!" he responds.

At the end of the drive, the salesman threatens to call the cops. That's when Gordon spill the beans and reveals his identity.

A relieved Steve says, "Let's do it again."

The video has already been view over 7 million times on YouTube.
