Adam Levine is well known as the singer for Maroon 5. He knows Patrick Dempsey as an actor, but he didn’t know him as a racing driver.

Until today, when he tweeted this.

Here’s the aforementioned ad, with Dempsey’s No. 27 Beautyrest-backed Porsche 911 GT America for Dempsey Racing tackling the streets of Los Angeles at night.

This needs to happen. And the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship – the series Dempsey Racing competes in – sent out this tweet thereafter.

Dempsey’s responded, too.

We’ll see if anything more from this, or if it’s just a case of a singer being star struck at Dempsey’s racing chops.

    Can we have a list heading into the weekend of the silliest/weirdest/most tenuous connection racing/commercial tie-ins? Because we have to include James Jakes’ Acorn Stairlift ad.

    “I absolutely must become a race car driver,it just feels right.”-Adam Levine.

    Possibly the best statement ever made that proves a person is totally out of touch with auto racing and what it means.

    Adam-buy some tickets and go the races.

    Patrick won’t sing songs and you stay off the race track.

    We’ll all be safer.

    For good or bad companies are starting to understand the connection between fans and auto racing. Some of these companies need to learn a lot more to actually connect with instead of offend or insult motorsports fans however.
