To celebrate the launch of the new dirt-busting BP Ultimate fuels last week, former Australian test captain Michael Clarke offered his services as an Uber driver in Sydney.
With spearmints and extra water in tow, the cricketer took to the wheel of his car between 8am and 11am last Thursday to share rides with unsuspecting Sydneysiders on their morning commute around the city.
The stunt was organised between BP Australia and Uber to celebrate the launch of BP’s new range of Ultimate fuels, which are claimed to “bust dirt in just two tanks”.
Mr Clarke was ecstatic to be surprising Uber riders as part of the stunt to launch new BP Ultimate.
“I’ve always loved meeting and surprising cricket fans across the country – and today’s stunt with BP and Uber has been an exciting experience,” he said.
“The launch of BP Ultimate across Australia is an exciting one. It’s BP’s best ever dirt-busting fuel. Having worked with BP over the years, it’s been great to again partner with them to help celebrate the launch in an engaging way.”
BP’s Ultimate fuels are a result of five years of development and more than 50,000 hours testing engines and vehicles covering the equivalent of more than 1.6 million kilometres.
