The first thing you need to know about this video is that it's an ad for chipmaker Qualcomm. But it also features a BMW i8, racing driver Nelson Piquet Jr., and racing driver Nelson Piquet Jr. drifting a BMW i8. So it's cool.

The idea behind the video is that Qualcomm's scientists get in the i8 and try to talk their science-talk while Piquet does a bunch of crazy stuff in the i8. It's kind of funny. I feel bad for the poor scientists.

But like I said, the really important thing here is that it shows the i8 isn't just a glorified Prius. BMW's hybrid sports car can move, forward and sideways.

The future looks bright, ladies and gentlemen. Bright and filled with tire smoke.
