WATER-BALLOON FIGHT!
Automakers like to find unique ways to introduce a new car but this is one of the more bizarre methods I’ve ever seen. To celebrate the launch of the Mito Quadrifoglio Verde, Alfa Romeo used over 2,500 water balloons to create its logo and then had its professional test driver pop them all with the car. Is it pointless? Yeah, but it’s fun to watch. The stunt set a world record for most water balloons burst by a car. Yes, apparently there is a record for that.

That was strangely satisfying!
