This week we learned two things – Americans don’t understand the rules of rugby league, but they’re pretty nifty at making car ads. It was Super Bowl Sunday, y’see – the grand finale of the country’s armoured game of football – and it’s a rather popular event. More than 100 million people tune in to […]
You know that moment when a trio of Lamborghinis is cruising down the highway, and everyone starts scrabbling for their camera phone? Here’s what happens when that goes badly.
God bless America, is all we can say. Here, for your delectation, is a wonderful example of how grace, dignity and subtlety can always be overcome with a ruddy great semi truck and a biblical firestorm.

Helmets are worn, lawns are ruined, and advertising executives entertain the enormous numbers of viewers while they re-fill their burgers during the breaks. Not American?
