Experience Some “Driver’s Education” Inside

We almost overlooked a new video Sega released yesterday to mark the Nintendo 3DS release of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, and we wanted to share it with you.

It would be a stretch to call this a trailer, as there’s next to no in-game footage to speak of here, let alone anything that appears exclusive to the 3DS.  Instead, Sega has framed this release as a warped take on the instructional drivers-ed video, complete with an appearance from Danica Patrick.  Patrick is still the celebrity face behind ASR Transformed, and she still doesn’t say a word in this spot.  Like that commercial from November, she just turns to the camera, smiles, nods and offers the single thumbs-up.  AiAi returns as well, and again is the subject of much torture.  Hope he has insurance on that fruit and pie and fruit pie stand.

The spot is likely intended as a “so bad it’s good” offering, but are we sure it isn’t just sad instead?  Take a look and afford your thoughts below in the comments.
