BMW preps ramp to launch car to America

Bmwramp BMW has come up with an ambitious faux documentary for the 2009 BMW 1-Series that involves the construction, in the imaginary town of Oberpfaffelbachen, Germany, of a giant ramp that’s intended to literally launch the vehicle across the Atlantic Ocean to the U.S. (all the way to San Francisco, in fact). Lots of guys with giant teeth seem to have worked on the project, which was filmed by (faux) documentarian Jeff Schultz. The U.S. government would shoot the car out of the sky and ask question later, but that’s a separate issue. Jalopnik has posted the video here in three parts. It clocks in at some 35 minutes, which is about 34 minutes and 15 seconds longer than our favorite faux-construction viral.
