Videos: Sea-Doo Spark Releases Four “Highly Scientific Test” Videos


Let it not be said that Sea-Doo is not without a sense of humor. The industry-leader in new personal watercraft sales just released a quartet of tongue-in-cheek “Highly Scientific Test” videos that not only address many common misconceptions about the avante garde Sea-Doo Spark, but also directly confront some claims by a “certain competitor” (Gee. We wonder who it might be. -Ed.). Each of the vignettes are brief, and meant to play out a bit like a “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” skit, with the dapper host doing his best Americanized John Cleese.

The subjects addressed include Impact Resistance, Scratch Resistance, Weight and Storage Space; and while fun and entertaining, don’t exactly debunk the claims, but sorta thumb their nose of them. Admittedly, we within the media were shown a cell phone video of a pair of Sea-Doo employees swinging a 10-pound sledge hammer at a bare Spark hull with all of their might. The repeated impacts scuffed the Spark’s hull, but remained unbroken and otherwise unharmed. We’d love to see that video get out some time.

Here’s the original press release:
Sea-Doo Showcases Unique Scientific Testing Of Spark Watercraft Models
Sea-Doo has executed some highly scientific testing on the SPARK watercraft models to ensure customers are enjoying the most advanced watercraft fun possible. Experts in several fields were recruited to conduct unique testing procedures to evaluate specific features to confirm their watercraft industry leadership position. The areas evaluated included impact and scratch resistance testing, affects of extra-added weight to a platform, and usable storage space.

The nimble and lightweight Sea-Doo SPARK is the most accessible watercraft in the industry starting at $5299. Constructed with the lightweight and durable Polytec hull material the Sea-Doo SPARK is in a class of its own in terms of simple, family friendly watersports fun. Sea-Doo innovation and smart design have been put through the test by consumers as the SPARK is the most popular selling model for three years running and is now put through comprehensive lab testing to prove it’s built to continue the trend.
Visit the Sea-Doo YouTube channel to view how the Sea-Doo SPARK withstands impact, scratches and whatever some claim in the full series of Sea-Doo – Scientifically Tested videos.
