Look around, look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now. Instead of having to leave our homes and head to a dealerships to test drive the 2021 Infiniti QX80, we can have someone do it for us. That someone just so happens to be Tony and Grammy Award-winning actor, artist, activist, writer and producer Daveed Diggs.
The actor, who originated the role of the Marquis de Lafayette in the Broadway hit musical “Hamilton” will be live streaming his experience behind the wheel of the QX80 starting October 13. According to Infiniti, Viewers will have a “driver’s seat view” from wherever they are in the world.

The expirience is designed to be an “immersive, intimate event” with viewers able to send in questions to Diggs about anything, from projects that he is working on, to the QX80 test drive experience, to life in general.
“Instagram Live offers a more personal, real-time interaction with audiences that’s more important now than ever before,” Diggs said. “I’m excited to partner with INFINITI on this unique concept that will allow me to connect with fans in a brand-new way.”
Diggs currently stars in TNT’s “Snowpiercer,” Apple’s “Central Park,” Showtime’s “The Good Lord Bird” and will next be seen in Pixar’s “Soul”. Diggs also co-wrote, produced, and starred in the acclaimed 2018 film “Blindspotting,” earning him an Independent Spirit Award nomination. The film will become a Starz spinoff series that Diggs is co-writing and executive producing. Meanwhile, his lauded rap group, Clipping, will release their latest LP on Oct. 23.
“At INFINITI, we believe that luxury should be lived in, and this Live Test Drive is a great example of that philosophy,” said INFINITI Americas Group Vice President Jeff Pope. “Daveed’s multi-faceted yet relatable personality is an ideal match for this first-of-its-kind Instagram Live from INFINITI. We hope to connect with more consumers than ever, before our Winter Sales Event begins, thanks to this effort.”
While INFINITI can’t offer up Daveed Diggs for actual test drives at its retailer, the company’s Infiniti Now program provides a new way for people to shop for a car on their terms – scheduling test drives online and having test drive vehicles delivered by participating retailers.
