I remember a time when I thought Pixar could do no wrong. Then I saw the first trailer for CARS and I thought the success streak was over. When I saw the second trailer, which was completely different than the first one in content and theme, I was confused and not hopeful for a good film. But when I saw the actual movie? I LOVED IT! Cars 2… not so much. Cars 3… I thought: Please make these stop. Thankfully, at least some of the merchandise from the second and third installments gave us some interesting and fun characters like this Clutch Aid Racing Tractor:
One of the funniest supporting character(s) in the CARS series was the tractor(s). Whether they were cows or racers, they just look hilarious! I give a ‘tip’ of the hat to whoever thought of adding these auxiliary characters to the scripts.
But no look at a tractor from the CARS franchise would be complete without the obligatory tipping picture:
Ever wondered if Tractor Racing was for you? Maybe you should watch a little of the new show entitled ‘The Fast and the Farmer-ish‘. Yup. That’s what it’s called. And here is what you can expect:
NEWLY relaunched TV channel BBC3 is set to mark its return to television with an all-new tractor racing and challenge series.
Presented by the farmer and farming vlogger Tom Pemberton, The Fast and the Farmer-ish (a play on the film titles in the Fast and Furious blockbuster movie series) will see teams from across the UK undertaking a series of tough tests to become the nation’s best tractor driving team.
Giving an insight into the types of challenges the competitors will face, the producers said:
“From tractor racing through a muddy bog to negotiating an obstacle course while singing their favorite karaoke tracks and demolishing sheds in a radical ten-pin tractor bowling game, this is not your average day on the farm!””
Yee Haaa! Yes, it does look fun. Dangerous, but fun.
