They go and make a video like this and totally redeem themselves! (Not really.)

But the video above sure is entertaining. After rumors that Jenson Button would leave the team this year, the less-than dynamic duo of Button and Fernando Alonso appears to be back in 2016 to compete in GP2 Formula 1. The video has a story, apparently:

Join the mighty Turbo Heroes, McLaren-Honda’s Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button, as they battle the evil racer Exhaustus in a thrilling journey across the globe in a tense battle to return mythical artefact the Jade Dragon of Suzuka to its spiritual home in Japan. 

At least the company has some sense of humor about its terrible season. The 8-bit throwup seems fitting: The Honda powerplant has consistently kept the cars 30 years behind the current generation all season.
