The Lifestyle of a Racer – Jenson Button

Johnnie Walker Jenson Button

Not long after British Grand Prix World Champion Jenson Button showed up in a commercial doing awkward yoga for Mobil One, he’s now showing up a slightly more suave role for Johnnie Walker.

What’s a professional driver doing promoting a whisky producer you may ask? Well, the whisky-maker’s #ImNOTdriving Twitter campaign (which you’ll see at the end of the video below) is there to promote not driving drunk and hopefully get some F1 enthusiasts looking at their booze.

We all know how much work goes into being a race driver – you have to be damn dedicated to it as a career to be successful.

Any unlike some other sports’ [**cough**] football [**cough**] immature and self-righteous star players, I feel like these guys deserve the high life on their off-time if for no other reason than their general humbleness despite their intensely prestigious lifestyle and beyond reasonable paychecks.

While this video is a commercial, in my mind I’d like to think of it as a documentary.

Also check out the quick 90-second behind-the-scenes video for the making of this video.

About The Author

I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006 to share my love of cars. My favorites include the Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT and Koenigsegg CCX, and I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the sexiest cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I like imports – Nissan, Audi, Subaru… I love my Pearl Yellow (don’t judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX TT and plan to get it to around 550 HP one day. I’m also an avid world traveler and love rock climbing.
