Hey Guys!

!ALL NEUE HISTORISCHE KINONEWSFLASCHEN!

The first Gumball 2005 Team Polizei Video is now available:

http://www.bullrun144.com/Videos/FirenzePolizia.mov

This file is HUGE and nearly 700 MB and 3 minutes long, so watch out!

THE STORY:
This video is set in Florence. Team Polizei is in 4th place and is about to leave the Florence checkpoint when a local Polizia Alfa Estate pulls up. What follows is 3.5 minutes of unedited footage of the local police giving us a personal escort to the gas station and out of the city to the autostrada.

The Polizia Alfa escorts us at speeds up to 100mph/160kph through the Firenze streets in a mind-bending, surreal and totally illegal escorted run that will shock Gumball fans and nearly killed us many, many times.

CHARACTERS:

DRIVER (Alex Roy), COPILOT (John Goodrich), FEMALE PASSENGER (Katie Huddart), whose Caterham broke down the night before and who won the Gumball Spirit Trophy.

Due to the HUGE size of this file, I ask that anyone who wants to host or mirror it, please do so!

Best Regards,

Please let me know if any of you've had success downloading and watching, and how you like it!

I'm working on offering a smaller file size now.

that is one of the most hilarious videos i've ever seen. having a highspeed cop escort you to get gas and then escorts you to motorway. cop even had his sirens on! :D then you turn yours on! hiha like your lady passenger said: "this is beyond my wildest dreams!".

it's actually an 8 mins. video. took about 15mins for me to download. (~900kb/sec transfer) the video seem to lag with the audio and the framerate skips. dunno why, maybe it's just 'cos of my work pc.

ps. just noticed your new post for a 69mb file size.... oh well...

Just watched the 69 MB video! That's the funniest video I have ever seen!!!hihahihahiha

The police: always your friend and helper!

I needed about 15 minutes for the download (85 kb/sec)

The 700 MB video is still downloading. (Just asking myself, what the computer is downloading, if you replaced the file? I will get the answer in about 51 minutes)

edit:
Just finished the 700 MB video download. It is just sound, no picture. But I think it's the same video as the 69 MB video, or?
Watched it now 3 times and still laughing about it....

Dear Yourk:

I've been to Skip Barber 2-day Track School, and to the Derek Daly 4-day Formula School. I've also played thousands of hours of PS2 GT4.

Best,

Alex

Absolutely amazing video Alex. Question for you: Do you have any formal driving/racing training? Ever attend schools like Skip Barber? Certainly have some good driving habits and techniques.
