In the latest viral video to join our charts, Audi pairs up with social media site Reddit for "Ask Me Anything," an occasional interactive Web series.

"Ask Me Anything," or AMA, is a popular feature on Reddit, and it's as straightforward as it sounds.

However, in this 30-minute video -- appropriately titled "Think Faster" -- Audi adds a little twist. Actor Adam Scott, of "Step Brothers" and "Parks and Recreation" fame, is asked questions submitted by Reddit users while being driven at high speeds in a 2018 Audi TT RS around Willow Springs Racetrack in California.

Sal Masekela serves as host and asks Scott questions while the car tears around corners and is launched through the straightaways. About halfway through the video, Scott and the driver switch seats and Scott continues to answer questions, though at a noticeably slower speed.

This was Audi's second tie-up with Reddit on AMA. It has also sponsored an AMA episode with actress Elizabeth Banks.

The video with Scott had 7,073,063 views, good for second place on the rankings compiled by Visible Measures. Renault's "#RenaultCAPTUR" was this week's top-ranked video with 8,201,566 views.

Kia and Land Rover also had new videos on the chart this week.
