You can't go wrong with JFK and fast cars.
This week's No. 1 auto brand viral video is a cockpit-vantage recording of the Hennessey Venom GT setting a new 2-seat sports car world record speed of 270.49 mph. The record was broken at the John F. Kennedy Space Center and is set against the former President's 1962 speech at Rice University where he sets the goal of reaching the moon by the end of the decade. The speech preemptively answers any criticism of purpose by effectively saying: Why not?
The rest of the video features the ear-splitting sports car accelerating to break the record, and ends with the ecstatic, triumphant team hugging and cheering. The spot shoots to the top of our list with 4,374,869 views.
Also new this week is Mazda's "Real Challengers," ranked sixth by Visible Measures with 435,027 views.
