When I see something like this, I don't think I'm asking too much to get my seatbelt chime deactivated...

Someone on YouTube mentioned it's possibly fake (he mentioned the plane was certainly fake) and I was upset. I don't want to think it's fake. So I watched it again a few more times.

Looking at 2:30 and you will see the steering wheel spinning with a sound like the car is moving. The speedometer however was at "0" and the shot seems to be from someone taking it by standing outside the car. I don't know if the remote control is fake but the video was edited at 2:30 to insert the sound that's unreal.

there is no way these guys went through all this effort for a fake video. I have seen many half-ass fake phone-driving videos, but this is legit.
