Bored? Watch Two Hours of Mini Truckin' Mayhem
How mini truckin’ is done Down Under.
Any mini truckin' fans in the house? As there are countless mini truckers literally in their houses worldwide right now practicing the art of social distancing, Inspired Existence Australia, which produces online video content about the Australian mini truckin' scene, has come out with a cool video on its YouTube channel. "Welcome to the COVID-19 Film" is a cohesive, two-hour compilation of the channel's best content that you can just watch and enjoy without having to individually click on all the videos separately. It's seamlessly edited together and flows like one big movie that has different chapters consisting of mini features, events, club gatherings, vlogs, road trips, and general mini-truck mayhem. It's not a how-to that'll require an annoying amount of brain power; it's pure entertainment that tells the tale of mini truckin' culture, so go ahead and click play and kill a couple hours. Plus, the builds are absolutely sick—and they're not just trucks.
The action is backed by music from Face to Face, Dogwood, Guttermouth, Pennywise, Offspring, and No Use for a Name, for example, which will undoubtedly inspire you to go tinker on your mini truck, indulge on a beverage of choice, or at least reminisce fondly on those careless mini truckin' days of your youth. Or maybe it'll just be enough to decompress from watching Frozen II and homeschooling little kiddos. Speaking of—it's probably safest to view this once those kiddos go to bed, as there's some colorful language, drinking, partying, and adult humor. If you're familiar with the quintessential mini truckin' lifestyle, you know what we're talking about.
The right-hand-drive Australian full-size and mini-truck offerings may differ from the trucks we're used to seeing and building in the United States, but that just makes this film even cooler. Although separated by thousands of miles and temporary shelter-in-place mandates, mini truckers worldwide share a passion for fabricating, hittin' switches, throwing sparks, and hanging with friends.
Grab some popcorn and a beverage or two, fire up your computer, and let the worries of the world disappear for two hours. We almost feel guilty watching this for free. The channel says that the film's availability will be limited to 30 days, after which it'll disappear forever and you'll miss out.
