Pumpcast News Part 1 from Jay Leno

This is viral right now on the web if you haven’t seen it you have to check it out. From the Tonight Show with Jay Leno they do a segment called Pumpcast News. Really quick is they take over the screen at a gas station and offer the chance to win free gas if you will sing one song. This is by far the best Pumpcast I have seen, from our friend Will (see screenshot below).
