This is proof advertisers don't know crap about cars

It's appropriate that Nurofen Zavance is a pain-reliever, because after watching this video you're going to have a massive headache. Seriously, did a seven-year-old boy write this commercial?

Let's ignore the two older BMWs in the video apparently have V8 engines instead of the inline-sixes almost certainly actually powering the cars. That's nothing.

The bigger issue here is the belief that racing cars (in some mysterious series with a 10-mile-long straight) have their power inputs controlled from a woman with a headset on a computer located somewhere off of the track. All she has to do is input a few keys but... but... she's got a raging headache!

Not even in Bernie Ecclestone's wildest dreams.

I always love in movies and TV how there is always some extra speed to have. Here it's activated with Zavance, in the Fast-n-Furious movies they do it with NOS, in everything else they just change gears more.

I always wonder why they would do this and not just start out with the race car in fast mode to begin with.
