Video: Chevy Intern Uses C7 PDR to Film Ice Bucket Challenge

You may have heard of or participated in the buzz that is the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but you definitely didn’t film it like this!

Chevrolet PR intern Courtney Moats took the Ice Bucket Challenge on Tuesday at the Milford Proving Grounds and coincidentally, it was the same day our sister site, CorvetteOnline, was out there to test out the new 8-speed-equipped C7 Corvettes – her Ice Bucket Challenge video was filmed in style with none other than the brand new Performance Data Recorder option on the new 2015 C7 Corvettes.

The Performance Data Recorder shoots in HD video and records in-car audio, but we were surprised that we could audibly hear what was going on outside of the car – it’s not loud by any means, but it did pick up what Moats was saying just fine.

And if you’re wondering who the two gentlemen are pouring the iced-water over Moats’ head, that would be Chevrolet PR dude extraordinare, Monte Doran, as well as Pete Lewis, who runs the ride and drive events. At beginning of the video, Moats actually nominates Lewis, so we’ll just wait and see how he chooses to film his Ice Bucket Challenge.

Moats’ idea to film the challenge was pretty cool, and she’s a trooper as well, not having an extra change of clothes and all – we’ve seen footage from the Performance Data Recorder, but of actual laps with the data overlays doing their thing, not just filming a stationary object, which in this case is a person. The Performance Data Recorder is a really cool piece of technology that could be used for far more than weekend outings on the racetrack. Also, for more on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, click here.
