Jay Leno’s Garage recently celebrated its one-millionth-subscriber landmark on YouTube, quite an accomplishment considering that he does no real advertising for the site. That means the growth of the Jay Leno’s Garage YouTube channel has been almost exclusively a phenomenon of word-of-mouth. You know, one car guy (or girl) talking to another car guy (or girl) and telling them that there is this really cool thing on YouTube about cars and the host just happens to be an outrageously funny person.
Not only is he very funny and one of the top comedians around, as well as the host of a major late night talk show, he also knows a thing or two about cars. As one of the premier collectors in the world he has assembled a gigantic array of very cool, unusual, and desirable cars.
In order to celebrate this momentous event, the video above was produced for the Jay Leno’s Garage YouTube channel. As you begin to watch the video, an unnamed and somewhat mysteriously unidentified driver enters a brand-new 2015 Ford Mustang at a location “somewhere in Los Angeles.” The driver then proceeds to tear up the pavement for a minute or so. The car is thrown this way and that, creating billows of smoky clouds from the tires, laying rubber down on the concrete at every turn of the wheel.
It’s not until the car comes to a halt that the scene is revealed from an aerial view and you are presented with a humorous surprise. Wait for it. Then the man himself steps out of the car. Jay Leno leans nonchalantly against the car and thanks you personally for helping the Jay Leno’s Garage YouTube channel reach a million subscribers, but also asks viewers what they like and want to see more off. Let Leno know what you want, and while you’re at it, do the same for StangTV in the comments section below.
