"The concept is inspired by this nerdy TV show that I used to watch," said Foust. "We dreamt up an action sequence that basically gave me the chance to drive as many fun machines as possible in one video."
In a nod to the 80s science-fiction television show Quantum Leap, the video follows Foust as he swaps between his favorite vehicles in unexpected environments. Linked by a special yellow steering wheel, Foust stunts his 600 horsepower Rockstar Energy Drink Volkswagen Beetle over a makeshift gap jump, takes a Jamaican excursion in a Polaris RZR UTV, gets sideways on gravel in his 900 horsepower drift Passat, drives a Porsche 912E with a personal family connection, and pilots a boat.
Donut Media led the production, capturing footage some 30-seconds at a time over six months of 2016. It is the first time that Foust has worked with Donut Media, a company that is rapidly building a reputation as a leader in creating shareable automotive content.
"We know there are a lot of people doing cool stuff out there and we're trying to do a new take and a fresh look," said Jacob Agajanian, vice president of partnerships at Donut Media. "Our shoots are fast and fun and a little sketchy, and we had a fantastic experience working with Tanner on this project."
