Alex Roy: Cannonballer/True American Man

Cannonball runners

The real reason to post about Lelouch’s famous run is because of this man, Alex Roy. He and his copilot did what many thought was impossible, drive 2,795 miles from NYC to Cali in under 32 hours and 7 minutes. The gear?

Twenty packs of Nat Sherman Classic Light cigarettes, check. Breath mints, check. Glucose and guarana, Visine and riboflavin, Gatorade and Red Bull, mail-order porta-pissoir bags of quick-hardening gel, check.

Oh and add in a heavily customized BMW E90 M5 with spy gear to monitor cops and a watch plane to scout out the traffic and road conditions. Also two years of planning to beat a 22 year standing record. We, men that is, tip our hats to you Alex Roy.

Bikini Rocker Riding Pie Fight

Bikini Pie Fight

I think now we can stop. We have channels like Spike and G4, so called “Men’s TV” which are nothing but havens for really shitty shows. Why the hell do they even bother when Japan has it already taken care of. Who wants to see reruns of Stargate SG1 and bad dubs of Takeshi’s Castle when in Japan right now they have real shows for guys. Take 2 girls in bikinis, make them ride rocker vibrator things, and have them throw pies at each other.

It is a little hard to tell from the screencap above but her O-Face is showing just how much girls love to be filmed getting hit in the face with stuff, whether it be meatballs, semen, or pies. They just want to take it in the face on film. TBS should get on this bandwagon because if this isn’t the definition of what T.V. should be, then I am truly going to breakdown and cry.

“Ride it bitch!”

C’était Un Rendez-vous by Claude Lelouch

October 17, 2007

In light of the recent breaking of the TransAmerica driving record, here is the video that has inspired pretty much everyone and anyone who has wanted to go fast. C’était Un Rendez-vous by Claude Lelouch is a short 9 minute true tour dé force of driving, showcasing one man’s speed trip through the streets of France.

There has been criticism on how fast the car was traveling where some say never faster than 140 km/h (85 mph). Lelouch himself claimed that the top speed achieved was over 200 km/h, somewhere between 230 km/h and 240 km/h. Also the soundtrack is dubbed as Lelouch himself as stated that the car was a Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 which was only available with a 3-speed automatic transmission. Yet, one can hear gear changes up into 5th, with a high-revving engine indicating speeds of well over 200 km/h. This video is art.

A votre sante.
