    If the No1 draft pick rookie gets injured on a commercial the team would go crazy, it's surely in his contract not to anything that jeopardising his ability to play ball.
    Bingo.

Anytime Courtney moves the car on his own it is either pushing it over in a way that even a smallish woman could (from it's side to it's back for example.)

    So yea... simple camera trickery.
    Double bingo.

    Actually, if I heard that right and the cars weighed 700 kilos (about 1550 lbs), then that proves HR's point--the car at ~2390 would be too much. Particularly as the Toyota in Upshaw's commercial would almost certainly have a lower center of gravity and therefore be harder to tip over. Thanks for the video though.

    HR, I stand corrected.

    I thought I'd throw this back to the top with how well our Rookie has been doing. Hopefully he can keep it up and not hit any wall.

    I know a guy that can actually lift the back of a car off the ground. He is a roided out powerlifter though. lol

    Nice to see the kid getting some ad $ whatever the case.
