Red Bull invited Tom Cruise to take a spin in a Red Bull F1 car at Willow Springs race track in southern California recently, so he took a break from post-production work on the latest Mission: Impossible film to take advantage of the unique opportunity. After an impressive turn behind the wheel, Cruise jumped into the Red Bull aerobatic helicopter with ace pilot Chuck Aaron for a few more thrills. The Red Bull F1 car has been appearing in the U.S. recently to mark the stateside return of Formula 1 racing in 2012 at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
Formula 1 Grand Prix Racing will return to the united states next year with a stop in Austin, TX.
Red Bull just used Tom Cruise to advertise this.

FHUPP – A now common adjective for something that is ultimately crazy – has randomly shown up in nearly every film from the last couple of years… However, from my understanding, a true FHUPP has not been accomplished and I challenge anyone who may be willing to strive for it.
The latest installment of a FHUPPed up jump comes from Level 1 Productions latest park shoot at Sun Valley, Idaho.
