Does the 2012 Chrysler 200 Convertible mimic the feeling of flying?

This year, Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale will star in the 2012 remake of 1990’s “Total Recall,” but perhaps the real “star” is the Chrysler 200 Convertible.

According to a press release from Chrysler, “The ad, titled ‘Wings,’ sets out to show how the driving excitement that the Chrysler hovercars provide in ‘Total Recall’ in the year 2084 is the same that can be experienced today behind the wheel of a 2012 Chrysler 200 Convertible.”

We’ll let you be the judge. Check out the video and pics below.
