Geniální text

Tahle reklama s komentářem Jeremyho Clarksona mě totálně do(j/st)ala. Za poslední rok jde asi o nejlepší text, který jsem četl. Pravdivý, dojemný a smutný. Když ohlédnu od toho, že jde o reklamu na Forza Motorsport, mohl bych si to pouštět pořád dokola.

We are endangered species, you and I. We, lovers of speed. We, devotees of power, performance, the noise.

”Go away,” we are told, “and take your carbon fiber and your fire spitting V12s with you.”

There’s hardly a place for us in here anymore. Not amongst all the commuters, congestion. Not in this growing age of safety and restraint.

The practicality traps adrenaline. Where the ratio of miles to the gallon is championed over horsepower to the weight.

The evidence is everywhere. You and I are being squeezed out, pushed aside and hunted down as every hairpin turn.

And yet, there is hope. There is a safe haven, a place where we are free to challenge conventions, push the laws of physics and drive our powerful, our beautiful machines hard.

It’s not a racetrack in Germany, or even a highway in Montana. It’s not even a real place actually. It’s more than that. It’s a communal celebration of horsepower, torque, grip, leather, technology, beauty, it is the last bastion of automotive lust. And it’s right there… In your living room.
