Mind Controled Bicycle – Prius inspired

Drifting on the go

I was sent this video clip over the weekend of some buddy in Asia drifting while having a bit of a meal. Come to think of it, this brings a whole new meaning to “Meals on wheels”.
The Car he is drifting is a Toyota AE86 the food he is chowing looks like a Big Mac and Medium Coke, I couldn’t help laughing. You need to watch at least a little bit. What do you reckon could be more entertaining than this?
