Robert Williams is a legend in the hot rod and low brow art scene, I’ve mentioned him before when talking about art and now I’m excited to see there is a trailer out for a film documentary on the man.

London 2 Brighton Mini Run

Posted in Video on May 20, 2011 by loxlee

I was just sent this very cool video on the LLE Facebook page (have you liked us yet?!) of the 2010 Mini Run from London to Brighton. It was filmed by Jason Laroza and shows off some pretty impressive Minis, after watching the video I dare you to say that the Mini scene is stale!

Ksubi Kolors – Aussie Muscle and Aussie Models

Posted in Video with tags , , on May 10, 2011 by loxlee

This is quite a strange one here really but someone sent me this super hip advert from Australian fashion people, Ksubi and told me to watch it because I was sure to like the cars. Well they were right, I loved the cars, I loved the Kumho coloured smoke tyres, I loved the slow motion burnouts and the women were alright as well I suppose.

Ksubi say of the advert “With the ksubi team securing the very last sets of limited edition coloured tyres by Kumho available in Australia they then enlisted Askill and his team at Collider to fuse the vivid smoke with the spectral denim range. Models Bambi Northwood-Blythe, Cisco Gorrow and Heidi Harrington-Johnson act as modern-day matadors to the rumbling Ford’s that attempts to hunt them down while the girls soar above the cars to an operatic soundtrack.

Shot next to Sydney’s Kingsford Smith International Airport in barren industrial wasteland that car fanatics converge on after dark and with a Phantom camera, Askill captures each and every denim movement and smoke billow at 1500 frames per second.”

I have no idea what the advert is supposed to mean or anything but it does look good with a trio of Ford Falcons billowing out some brightly coloured burnout smoke. Mainly however I am really interested in the arched Falcon with the big bonnet bulge on it. Do any of you Australian readers know about this car? It looks amazing and I’d love to see some pictures and specs for it!

Everything looks so beautiful and poetic in slow motion and this 3 part series of short videos shows some stunning slow motion footage of various different types of racing from F1 to rallying and bikes. It is amazing how much you miss when watching it at full speed, the details you see in slow motion making for some jaw dropping scenes, check out the tyre deformation, jumps and flamage!

VW: The Force

Posted in Video on February 7, 2011 by loxlee

This is going a bit viral at the moment with over 15k views since it was put on YouTube on the 2nd of February. VW certainly know how to make some pretty good adverts without hardly mentioning the car much… Starting a car on the key fob isn’t a brand new invention from VW with quite a few cars having the feature already but using it as the basis for the advert does result in something pretty great.

In the suggested videos on YouTube this Transporter van ad came up. I’ve never seen this one before, made me giggle! All of the funny adverts seem to be foreign, do we have stricter rules here or something?!
