According to his blog, Okulski was flown down to Charlotte earlier this month under false pretenses. He thought he was getting a chance to get in the brand new Corvette Z06.
"So I flew to Charlotte where I was told that the Z06 was being filmed for an ad series that would happen before Top Gear USA," he wrote.
In order to keep things quiet, Okulski was told the project was top secret and lots of money would be lost if people knew.
That's when Gordon, dress with fake neck tattoos, a wig and fake facial hair, pulled up in a cab to pick Okulski up from the motel.
After a few minutes of small talk, a state trooper pulls behind the cab and Gordon said something Okulski didn't want to hear.
"There's a cop behind me. I get nervous when cops are on me. I just got out after 10 years in jail."
After briefing pulling over, Gordon decides to make a run for it and the real fun (and screams) begin.
"I'm a bad passenger in a car, I always have been, but this is slightly different. See, I was just kidnapped by an ex-con in the back of a cab that is now speeding down a hill, busting through a chain fence and narrowly missing buildings while trying to get away from a North Carolina State Trooper," Okulski wrote.
"I thought I was going to die. I yelled, I banged the glass, I actually tried to kick through the Plexiglas window between the driver and me. I pulled out my phone to call 911, but couldn't keep it steady enough to dial."
So while Okulski still believes the first ad was faked.. "I can say with total certainty that this second Pepsi Test Drive ad is unequivocally, one hundred percent, totally, absolutely real."
