The Patrese Effect.
It all started with that clip of ex F1 driver Riccardo Patrese out for a lap in a Honda Civic, smirking as his terrified wife hurled all manner of insults his way, an internet legend was born.
A couple of million YouTube views later, Porsche tries to recreate the spirit of the video with a teaser clip used for the launch of the 997 GT3 MarkII. Now, one of our readers made his own "tribute to the tribute" clip with his GT3 and a girl whose hair makes for a great analog G-meter! Check it out, she's a pretty good sport about it and...she doesn't hurl!

Still, our vote for funniest "scared passanger" video of all time will have to go to Jordi Gene's grandmother!...
