Up to now, the only thing French that Tony Stewart knew was French Fries or maybe French Toast.

But in a new series of spoof commercials from Mobil 1, Stewart tries out a few new activities to potentially pursue “the next chapter” of his life as he heads into retirement as a Sprint Cup driver at the end of this season.

Like learn French -- as a language -- and not as something he eats.

Check out the video below and watch as Tony (butchers) … err, shall we say, tries to learn a new language. He even wears a French beret. All we can say is, “sacre’ bleu!”
