Well, my job is now obsolete. It was nice while it lasted. But I can see the writing on the wall, or, in this case, the pictures on the XBox. See, why am I running around like an idiot trying to drive and evaluate and think about actual cars when I can just pop Forza into my XBox and do it all virtually like I'm in the Matrix or this "cyber-spaces" I've heard so much about?

Really, I'm not sure what to say about this video. The guy's Russian (based on the accent and Cyrillic text on the screen) so you have to factor in the possibility of a language barrier, but even so it's amazing to see an "exterior review" of a 1977 Aston Martin focus almost entirely on the use of chrome trim and marvel at the "place for number plate" and "lockable trunk." Oh, and mentioning that the virtual car has A/C is an inspired touch.


I'll admit to finding this video almost soothing in a weird way. Just watch it, I guess. I'll hesitate to say you'll learn something unless today is your first day enjoying human vision, but I'm sure you'll be amused, even if there's no good reason why.

(Thanks, Rich!)
