You might remember in 2007 when Brian Vickers, then driving for Hendrick Motorsports, drove a bright green Chevrolet with Garnier Fructis sponsorship, and it made The Daily Show (search for the clip on the show archives if you want).

Now, Vickers is in a new ad for sponsor Aaron’s where bathtubs, screaming girls and team owner Michael Waltrip are featured. See the commercial above. The campaign is Aaron’s “Own the Life You Want.”

As far as his actual driving goes, Vickers has been on a roll of late with a solid run at Auto Club Speedway two weeks ago and a fourth place Monday in Texas.

The full video highlights of Stage 12 will air on NBCSN on Friday at 7 pm ET, but here are some of the highlights from Thursday’s action:
