Sprinkles go flying everywhere.
Apparently June 3 is National Donut Day in the United States, and Nissan doesn't want to miss the chance for an easy automotive pun. To mix doing donuts with decorating doughnuts, drifter Chris Forsberg gets behind the wheel of a 370Z Nismo in a studio full of 2,880 pounds of sprinkles. We're not sure we'd want to eat any of these pastries after Forsberg is done driving over the candy, but the baked goods look like a lot of fun to prepare.
The 370Z Nismo's 350-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 can certainly fling sprinkles from the rear wheels, and wearing eye protection is a very good idea. The slow-motion shots show the bits flying everywhere. By the time he's done, it looks like Forsberg thoroughly covers the donuts and everyone in the studio. After spreading around the candy, the next logical step is to start a food fight and play in the leftover sprinkles.
We're not sure why donuts need a day of celebration, but it's fun to see automakers getting in on the action with a humorous video. Maybe next year Nissan could pack some pastries into the NV Cargo Van drift truck from April Fool's Day and start sliding around.
