Video: Aston Cygnet vs Parkour

Watch a pair of free-runners get all excited about Aston’s iQ-based city car

Aston Martin has released a funky, down-with-da-kidz promotional video for the Cygnet, its upcoming Toyota iQ-based city car-thing.
 
And, because the Cygnet will be funky, down-with-da-kidz and promotional, the video features Parkour runners, dashing and flipping through the Aston factory in a bid to reach the Cygnet first.
 
This pushes the boundaries of credibility a fraction, we fear. As desirable as the Cygnet shall no doubt be, is anyone really going to sprint past a box-fresh DBS to reach one? We fear not.
 
Anyhow, watch the video and let us know what you think. Obviously you'd never see TopGear stooping so low as to impress the kids by using Parkour in a race....

Now share it...
