Video of a Mercedes racing a golf ball

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 21, 2012

I know this is a “viral video” and I’m a sucker for posting it, but it’s pretty cool and fits under the umbrella of what fast looks like. Anyway, watch this Mercedes chase down a golf ball that flies off the tee at almost 180 mph.

Hole in one! And just so you don’t mistake this for some sponsored Mercedes love-fest, some shitheels in a silver Benz very much like the one in the video woke my whole family up at 5am this morning by deliberately setting off their car alarm every 30 seconds outside my house. You know, for fun.

The ventilation system at the Mercedes-Benz Museum can be repurposed to form a 100+ foot tall indoor tornado.
