The two hottest new viral videos to make our list this week occur in very different locales.
BMW jumps to the No. 1 spot with "Ultimate Racetrack" by Cundari Toronto. Spoiler: The racetrack is constructed on a boat where a BMW M4 swerves dangerously close to an edge lacking any sort of guard rails. The video has 3,639,895 views.
Hyundai, on the other hand, took its stunt drivers to the Californian desert to demonstrate new safety technology. In "The Empty Car Convoy," stunt people driving in a line leap out of their cars onto a padded platform being pulled alongside, leaving the cars driverless except for the leader. Said leader then proceeds to blindfold himself and take his hands off the wheel, leaving the whole pack of cars to the mercy of cruise control and lane-keeping technology. The real shock comes midway, as the automatic braking is forced to kick in or risk a six-car pile-up.
The video, by Worldwide Seoul, is ranked fourth by Visible Measures with 716,083 views.
Also new this week is Chevrolet's "History of Manchester United Shirt," ranked fifth with 664,044 views; Jaguar's "Virtual Windscreen" concept, ranked eighth with 364,980 views; and Jaguar's "Jaguar Gives You More," ranked ninth with 353,711 views.
