The BMW i8 was used as a bit of an attention grabber in a recent GoPro-shot video from the startup company Scrooge — filmed in Helsinki, Finland.
The video is a bit funny, I guess, showing all sorts of double-takes, staring, and even a guy nearly dropping his camera — all of which is revealed to have been the result of a BMW i8 plug-in hybrid (PHEV)… with a funny little sticker on its window.
It’s probably worth a watch for those who are fans of the rather interesting looking BMW PHEV sports car. Or those who are curious to see what the capital of Finland looks like.
I’m a bit curious now to see if the BMW i8 would get such varied looks in a cosmopolitan city, like, say, Paris? Or London?
I’d also be rather interested in seeing a video like this showcasing people’s reactions to the “falcon doors” on the Tesla Model X SUV opening up… I bet that would be interesting. Or perhaps even a video showcasing a Tesla driving itself without anyone in it….
