Was it your video? If so, get in touch because we'd love to be able to show off the creator and stars of ...

Friday Funny: Great Escape tribute

James Keen, 23 January 2009 15:12

An advert for Anchor butter shows a cow making a Steve McQueen style bid for freedom with a daredevil motorcycle jump. The tribute to one of the most famous bike scenes of all time from 'The Great Escape' differs from the original in a big way though - this time around he makes it and wheelies off into the sunset!

Speed control Danish-style

Steve Farrell, 30 October 2008 13:26

Here’s one European speed control measure we wouldn’t mind the UK sharing. Topless babes wave speed limit signs at motorists in an initiative from the Danish Road Safety Council. The ‘speed control bikini bandits’ are seen slowing traffic to well within the posted speed limit in a short film made the council. The council says the aim of the tongue-in-cheek ...

This Dutch motorcyclist was clocked at 137 kmh (85 mph) by a speed camera on the A28 at Staphorst, Holland - while sliding down the tarmac on his backside after falling off his Kawasaki ZRX1200. As if it was any consolation the 50 ...
