Video: Ken Gushi Avoids Hitting Deer While Filming FR-S Commercial

Hey guys,

look what i found on autoblog...looks like this is from the new scion fr-s commerical...enjoy!

Quote:
Drifting champ and Scion spokesdriver Ken Gushi narrowly missed a deer while shooting a spot for the Scion FR-S, and the helicopter camera crew caught the entire ordeal in glorious high-def.

Gushi and crew were filming at Mt. Diablo State Park in Northern California when the close encounter took place, and by close, we're not talking feet, we're talking inches.

Always the marketing pro, Gushi went on to commend the Scion's steering and brakes for helping avoid disaster. Check out the video and Gushi's response after the jump.

That was pretty close. Maybe they can use the footage in the commercial for its great handling.

WOW, that lucky deer.

Another way for FR-S to brag about its brakes.

No it's not, though I'm disappointed there wasnt some awesome drift or something, he just got on the brakes in time.

I know right? It wouldve been so sick if he drifted to the side of the deer

He was not driving fast enough so he could not pull the trick from Takahashi Ryosuke in Initial D.
