This week, my blog has been dedicated to redneck vehicles, drivers and racing. For my final installment in this series, I found this hilarious web video featuring a group of hilljacks racing their pickup truck over railroad tracks at increasingly accelerated speeds. After realizing the truck was thrashed after numerous jumps (and probably after several beers), the redneck buddies gang up on the truck and tip it over into a ditch. Check it out at 3:00 mark. Totally ridiculous.
If there is one word that is usually associated with "redneck", it's gotta be NASCAR. So with my tribute this week to redneck cars and racing, why not have a fun compilation of NASCAR crashes? This particular vid from YouTube supposedly has over 40,000 views...so 40,000 rednecks can't be wrong, right???
So far this week, we've seen the sometimes creative, sometimes jury-rigged, and often times hilarious self-modified vehicles that only the American redneck can concoct. With that in mind, I'm pleased to present the viewer with the motorized cooler, and the world of cooler racing.
This vid comes from dirttraxtv.com, where we get to witness the excitement and drama of an off-road cooler relay race. There's everything here you'd get in a typical car or dirt bike race: a couple of wheelies, some crashes, and some rednecks. This modern invention is quite handy--not only can you … Read more
While looking for redneck racing videos this week, I stumbled upon a video that has supposedly generated over 5,000 hits on YouTube that features the "Redneck Racing Challenge". Basically, this video features a bunch of hilljacks racing vehicles (many of these jalopies have no business being raced at all) in an off-road competition to see who can race the course and do the jumps in the shortest time. Lots of cool jumps, plenty of smoke and dust, and a few nasty crashes as well. Check out what happens to the very first car in the video - … Read more
Last week my blog took a look at NFL players and their fancy, tricked-out rides. This week, I'm gonna go in the complete opposite direction and give this platform to that modern American creature - the "Redneck" - and their customized vehicles as only they can drive them.
To kick off what should be a fun week of video, I found this hilarious slide show video of redneck vehicle customizations, including my personal favorite, the "Redneck Spoiler". Crack open a can of PBR and enjoy!
Stay tuned this week for crazy redneck driving, racing and … Read more
Welcome to the working week! We're back after a very relaxing Labor Day Weekend. We welcome Natali back to the office and catch up on some political news. Don't fret, we mostly just make fun of Palin's daughter's redneck boyfriend. Other stories from today include MySpace suckage, CraigsList prostitution busts, an Amy Winehouse mental health update, and a Justin PSYu Foundation report!
After an extended weekend, it's usually difficult to drag yourself back into the office, but it's easy when there's so much to talk about! First things first: how come nobody told … Read more
Hip Tech Blog is showcasing a particularly interesting exhibition from last week's X Prize Cup in New Mexico: a 2,750-pound thrust nitrous oxide rocket that fits neatly in the bed of a pickup truck. Here at Crave, we like versatile technology, and wow, this truck rocket really takes the cake. Imagine the possibilities!
1. Clearly, now you can catch up with that elusive deer. Unfortunately, since the rocket takes up the entire truck bed, you'll have to find somewhere else to put the animal when you drive it to the taxidermist's. And a rocket can't … Read more
