Yesterday, Arctic Cat uploaded a video titled, "Wildcat Porsche Crusher". The video features their sport side-by-side 4x4 the "Wildcat" driving (they call it crushing) up and over a Porsche 911. As the Wildcat comes over the top of the Porsche the announcer says, "The Wildcat, more fun than the usual midlife crisis." Here, watch for yourself.
While I'm fairly impressed with the way the 4 x 4 goes up and over the 911, I'm not sure I like their suggestion. More importantly, I hate the fact that they did this to a Porsche. If we're talking mid-life crisis shouldn't they have used a Corvette? Maybe the Corvette was simply too big for the Wildcat to get over? 🙂
Will the Video Come Back to Bite Them?
Most comments on the video (viewed nearly 15,000 times as of writing this post) are less than complimentary and I've already seen a few forum posts deriding it. Maybe that's what Arctic Cat wanted? All publicity is good publicity, right? There getting a free plug here, after-all.
