See Why Dekotora Is A Viable Alternative To Hard Drugs

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

“Dekotora” is Japanese for turning a truck into some freaky confluence of medieval knight and Las Vegas slot machine. But this tribute video is like an acid trip, action movie montage and 1980's sex scene rolled into three and a half minutes of glory.

Apparently if you can make it through two whole minutes of that you get to be reincarnated as a dragon. Watch the whole thing and I’m pretty sure you get to master time travel.


I’m not sure I’ll ever really understand dekotora but I’m sure glad creativity is this strong somewhere in the commercial trucking industry.

You don’t understand dekotora?

deko = decoration

tora = TRUCKS

It’s pretty simple and rad.
