The 2014 Corvette Stingray has been a popular choice for moviemakers.
In this 6-minute, 22-second flick on YouTube called “Stingray the Movie,” produced by Raj Patel and directed by Joe Clarke, we see two men recruited to do a getaway job for a local kingpin who’s described as “a bit of a whack job…bit of a temper.”
The kingpin isn’t too thrilled when his underling brings in a young punk to serve as the getaway driver.
“This is the guy? Some scrawny-ass Indian teenager is the best driver you could find me?” he asks the recruiter.
“He’s the best driver I know.”
“Where the hell did you find him?”
“I saw him race last year. I don’t know anything about him, where he eats, where he sleeps, where he goes at night. He lives behind the wheel. He’s the kind of guy you need.”
“Shut up! Shut up! Now look. I don’t want some pretty boy. I want somebody who can drive. Son, this job is worth a lot of money, and I love my money. Do you think you can do this?”
The driver stares straight ahead, remaining speechless for a few seconds, then makes a smart-aleck gesture toward the kingpin with his hands.
Is he in trouble? Far from it, the young driver’s spunk impresses the kingpin, who pauses, then begins to laugh uncontrollably and says “I like this kid; he’s got balls! Go ahead, take him down to the garage and show him the car. Now both of you be at the site tomorrow at 6 p.m. sharp; do NOT be late. Now get the hell out of my bar.”
The scene then cuts to dramatic footage of an Arctic White 2014 Corvette Stingray, as we hear the recruiter explain to the Indian in language that sounds like the script for a commercial for the car, rattling off endless stats about the Z51 and its 460hp engine.
The next day, the two men arrive at what appears to be an apartment construction site. The recruiter tells the driver to stay for six minutes (which he keeps up with conveniently enough on the Stingray’s instrumental panel, instructing him to stay not a second later. The time rapidly ticks off and the recruiter is still nowhere in sight, so the driver reluctantly pulls away. When he reaches a crossroads, he decides to turn around and head back to try and save his friend.
Will he make it in time? Oh, ye of little faith, do you think a Stingray would actually let somebody down in his time of need?
This is a great little short that offers some interesting dialogue and beautiful scenery (especially of the Stingray from the air at the end). We think it’s a video worthy of the Stingray.
