Thrashing A Jeep In Baja Makes For One Hell Of A Motor Oil Commercial


Pennzoil is back at it again with the mini-movie ads.

Pennzoil has been busting its ass as of late to show that motor oil commercials don’t have to be boring. It drifted a Challenger Hellcat in one ad (because why not?), and now its latest spot features a jacked-up Jeep Wrangler four-door. This video was shot in Baja California, Mexico, and is designed to show how Pennzoil’s oil performs under extreme heat and demand. The Wrangler is this video is thoroughly put through its paces, sliding around the sand before crawling over some rocks and hauling ass up a hill.

It’s not the craziest Jeep video we’ve ever seen but Pennzoil does deserve credit for making something that’s more like a film and less like an ad. Thanks to director Ozan Biron for shooting this clip over to us. If you’ve made a cool car video you’d like to share feel free to drop us a line at
