Watching CG Cars Crash Onto The Lunar Surface In Low Gravity Is Weirdly Engaging

Look, I know how busy you are, and I know you’re swamped right now and you can’t even bring yourself to look at the list of crap you have to get done but that’s why I think it’s so important that you just pause for a moment right now to watch this absurd video of CG cars launching off a cliff in 1/6th lunar gravity and then crashing on the lunar surface. I can’t say why, but I think it’ll help.

Here, give it a try:

There’s a decent selection of cars there, from that Baja Beetle going first (note how the rearward weight bias makes its crash pretty different than the others, save for the almost-Fiat) to something that’s like a Subaru WRX to what’s similar to an Econoline, and then a nearly Fiat 500 or 600 Abarth, an‘80s almost-Oldsmobile, and more not-quite-like-reality cars.

Why did I watch this with such interest? I have no idea. But, maybe if you do the same, we’ll be that much closer to understanding.

Understanding ourselves.
