VIDEO: Jenson Button drives Honda S800 in Johnnie Walker ad

Jenson Button Honda S800 Johnnie Walker 01

Formula One driver Jenson Button stars in a new Johnnie Walker Red Label campaign called “Joy will Take you Further.” Button is a long-time Honda pilot and is currently part of the McLaren-Honda team, so it makes sense that he’s also driving a sexy little Honda S800 in the commercial. 

The number 22 on the car is Button’s racing number, but it’s unclear whether the car itself is his. It wouldn’t be surprising if it was. Here’s a video where he drives his own S600 (which was sold at auction in 2010).

    That is beautifully shot. Love the on-track footage of the S800…

    “…sexy little Honda…” – Thanks for not saying “It is cute as a…” The Honda S800 Sports Car Club fb page reports it as being Barry Fernaly’s, possibly named “stripey.”

    The only show I watch every day is PTI, which is sponsored by Johnnie Walker, so I have been seeing more stripes and buttons than an Old Navy convention.

  3. The Johnnie Walker commercial shoot was taken at the Millbrook Proving Ground on the 08 July 2015 and stared Jenson and Mika Hakkinen along with a large production team.
    The shoot involved 12 action sequences of the Honda S800 around Millbrook with the S800 which had been given a make over of black strips and Jenson’s F1 racing number 22.
    The weather could not have been better, Max the director was very happy and CTF 791E gave a fantastic performance before returning back home to Wilmslow.
    There is a short video on the Honda S800 Sports Car Club’s Facebook website.
