Episode 6: Car Chase Musicals

In this episode of the Automotive Podcast we talk about our favourite car chase musicals, featuring Baby Driver and The Blues Brothers. We also give our (spoiler-free!) thoughts on the first season of Netflix's Hyperdrive, and we can't work out how to pronounce C'était un rendez-vous. But first Chris and Marty discuss the finale of Netflix's Hyperdrive (https://www.netflix.com/title/80189648) and how there are Behind the Scenes videos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6ZHDN45TEg) coming out now on YouTube from the competitors. Following on from our BMW Film Festival, we are told about a Mercedes Choose Your Own Adventure (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZLCDVpMpCg) advertising campaign during the X-Factor, and The Road Rat magazine (https://theroadrat.com) publishes a Richard Porter (https://twitter.com/sniffpetrol/status/1173572917512298497) piece where he watches all the Fast & Furious films in one sitting. Our type of man! For the release of Ford vs Ferrari (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1950186/) (never Le Mans 66 in our parish!), reviews from the Toronto International Film Festival are in. First thoughts seem average, but we're still looking forward to it! For this episode Martin discusses Baby Driver (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3890160/) while Chris revels in The Blues Brothers (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080455/). And for this week's highlights, Martin’s been watching the Goodwood Revival 2019 AC Cobra battle in the RAC TT Celebration Trophy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekVQX6tMy78) with tweed, flat caps, glorious Goodwood, Spitfires, the Hun, beer with bits in it, Stirling Moss GOODWOOD. Meanwhile Chris has been continuing obsession with historically viral videos, this time with Alex Roy analyising C'était un rendez-vous (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmdR6B1DPac).
