Unusual scenes about two weeks ago in a casino in Las Vegas. While casino guests are sitting at the gaming tables, a Red Bull Formula 1 car is driving through the premises just a few meters away. A corresponding video of the action is currently circulating on social networks. But what is the reason for a real Formula 1 car driving through the gaming area of the casino?
Again and again the glamorous gambling metropolis provides surprises. We last reported in January of this year that a “slot machine” in Las Vegas even gives out real cars. Now, media around the world has reported that a Red Bull Formula 1 car has driven straight through a casino in Las Vegas – and not at all as slowly as a video published on social media shows.
Formula 1 car drives through the middle of the casino and across the famous Strip
The Formula 1 car first drove through a casino in Las Vegas and then, of course, at a significantly higher speed through the strip, where the casinos and entertainment venues of the desert metropolis are located. The beverage producer Red Bull himself is said to be responsible for the campaign. The Austrian company had a promotional video shot in Las Vegas. Incidentally, as recently as May, we reported on the “psycho tricks” used by casinos in Las Vegas in an article published on GambleJoe.
Red Bull is a caffeinated energy drink from Red Bull GmbH based in Fuschl am See (Austria). The company was founded in 1987. Most recently, the beverage manufacturer sold more than 9.8 billion cans of its energy drinks around the world in 2021. Red Bull is known for its sponsorship of numerous sporting events, especially in the field of extreme sports.
Formula 1 will soon be back in Las Vegas
Next year, Formula 1 will stop in the desert metropolis of Las Vegas for the first time since 1982. Reason enough for Red Bull’s newly crowned world champion team to have a corresponding advertising video made. Within a short time, the video has spread on social networks and has already received thousands of views and comments.
The scene was filmed with the Formula 1 car driving through the gaming area of a casino, incidentally in the well-known Wynn Hotel. The Formula 1 car even left clearly visible tire tracks here. We last reported in March last year that a “tip dispute” between Wynn and the employees that had lasted for years could finally be settled.
As early as next year, after around 40 years, an official Formula 1 race will take place in the gambling metropolis of Las Vegas. The Red Bull team took the opportunity to shoot a high-profile promo video showing a Formula 1 car from the world champion team at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas.
