Working together with a casting agency, Ford invited young male actors to audition for a new TV show pilot about dating. The wannabe actors were asked to meet up with the show's supposed 'star' who would determine if there was enough chemistry between them.
The viral video, which has racked up near on 10 million views in just under a fortnight, sees them initially meet in a diner and vaguely get to know one another. Soon after, Persson decides it's too noisy and suggests they go somewhere else to talk.
This is when it is revealed to them that she owns a pretty badass car — the Ford Mustang GT. After being bowled over by her choice of automobile, they quickly become unimpressed with her supposed inability to drive it. But of course, Persson isn't uncomfortable.
Instead she's a professional stunt driver, who proceeds to thrash the tyres off her Mustang in a deserted parking lot with the confused, scared, excited men in tow. It was indeed her that showed them 'what this thing can do'. If you liked this stunt, take a look at more pranks over on the BEcause blog, like Lenovo snapping MacBooks, a killer shark in a fishmonger and zombies on the streets of Vienna.
