What you get when you watch this video:

  • The catchiness of Blurred Lines while maintaining your self-respect
  • An education!

I love this video because

a) it takes the catchy tune of a disgrace of a song and turns it into something glorious

b) includes the line “Get out of the gene pool” and any song with that line deserves everything

we should make this more popular than blurred lines

I can’t believe I put off watching this, because it was figuratively fantastic.

I think “literally fantastic” would work here

While I absolutely hated Blurred Lines, I’d say this is genius. And I love the layout of the video.

For every hour you spend in the company of other human beings you need X number of hours alone. Isolation is the indispensable component of human happiness.

This is the meanest Fiat 500 on Earth

RRM’s 250bhp Abarth reckons it can smash a Lotus Exige around a race track. Still looks adorable.

There’s something adorably incongruous about the world’s desire to turn the bug-eyed, cute-as-a-very-cute-button Fiat 500 into a circuit-devouring sports-thing. Like arming a Labrador puppy with a claymore.
From Fiat’s own Abarth efforts to aftermarket tuning jobs, it seems everyone wants to turn the little 500 nasty.

But we’ve not yet seen one nastier than Road Race Motorsports’ shot at a Cinquecentro, creating what it calls the ‘500 M1 Turbo Tallini Competizione’, a name rather longer than the car itself.
The American-fettled 500 M1 (let’s go with that for brevity) is a road-legal track-day special that, promises RRM, can keep pace with a Lotus Exige around a circuit. That’s fighting talk. [x]

It seems ridiculous to remake and repost a gif that has 180,000 notes in the original post, but I just wanted to make an updated and improved version that makes the most of the new 2Mb gif limit.
