Passenger-videos are almost always enjoyable, whether the people being filmed for their reactions are scared for their lives or are simply enjoying the ride a bit too much – which is pretty much what can be said of the video below.
In what could very well be a low-budget toothpaste commercial, the following footage is of what appears to be a middle-aged man who is having the time of his life while riding shotgun in a roaring Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

We have no idea of any family correlation between the rather cool-headed younger driver and his non-stop grinning passenger, but they might as well be a son showing his father the how much Gs can a modern supercar make its passenger endure on a racing track.

The baby-boomer generation grew up with rumbling, chassis-shaking V8 muscle cars, so the sound made by the might M159, 6.2-liter, normally aspirated V8 of the SLS AMG can probably bring a few memories for our hero in the passenger seat.

The way that the car accelerates, brakes and takes corners is most likely a completely new experience, though, hence the Joker grin. We know that the chances of forgetting how a modern day Gullwing looks like are as slim as a toothpick, but we've also prepared a nice photo gallery of the car below.
