Does luxury brand Infiniti have anything in common with the practice of martial arts? It certainly does if you're viewing the brand's new online video clip named "Drive of the Dragon," which features =Red Bull Racing driving Sebastian Vettel and Hong Kong actress Celina Jade using their martial arts "skills" in China.

This car will be named the Infiniti LE, and it's expected to be very similar to the production version of the model (unlike previous Infiniti dabblings.)
Have you heard of Cirque du Soleil? French for "Circus of the Sun," it's one of the most magical, breathtaking traveling shows on the planet, and now Infiniti is taking part in the fun. The "Le Voyage Inspire" act by the seven-passenger 2013 Infiniti JX35 was streamed live earlier today (12p.m., to be precise), but it's still available online at (Facebook.com/Infiniti) and (Facebook.com/CirqueduSoleil).

Whether they were leaked on purpose or by accident, we can't help but get excited about what we see!
