Watch a Corvette Z06 Release a Net That Catches a Human Cannonball
This has to be one of the most creative ways to show off a car feature, and it's not exactly what you might think. Yes, sure, a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 ensures the safety of this wild and adventurous human cannonball. And the video shows how fast and how well the car handles on the track. But the Z06 isn't catching the person, and performance isn't what the commercial shows off. The stunt is intended to highlight the ZO6's Performance Data Recorder, a system that tracks 30 channels of telemetry. In addition to being able to video record, it'll also record audio, track driving statistics, and time your performance. Then it'll analyze it all and report it back to you.

In the commercial, there are two crucial points: the trigger for shooting the guy out of the cannon, and the car crossing a certain point on the track to hit a fishing line that will release a net to catch him. The 650-horsepower supercharged V8, wider stance, and increased aero downforce are all up for the task.
Just kidding, it's actually all fake. The flying dude is just CGI, and nobody was actually shot out of a cannon. Womp womp.
