While I feel like I’ve seen this setup before – come to a small town, do something cool for the citizens, document it in a hometown-y way – I really can’t find much to fault in the way Mitsubishi did it for their electric car. It’s really nicely shot. The people are super likable. And […]

What do you know? A fart joke that actually has a concept behind it.
