Funny or Awesome? Nathan Fillion in his electric car
I'm going with douche.
This. Maybe even adding Smug to it.
I just lost alot of respect for the man........
He's prolly trolling.
Fillion is a really funny guy and it' clear that he's posing for the photo. He's driving a prototype car that doesn't even have any bodywork - he's trying to support a local startup company. He took the car out for a spin, ate pizza while it charged up enough to go home, hung out with some fans from the shop and some who stopped by, and went home.

If the photo was meant to be some sort of green-hybrid-against-the-world-thing-statement, you'd think they would have been smarter and choose something other than a NA 4cyl Honda S2000 to insult.

"SLC Punk" for Utah? FAIL. I've lived here most my life and there are a few nuggets of truth to that film, but that's about it. My vote would have been for Sandlot.

When people think movies they think of Hollywood and California. Here's a list of films shot in Utah.

  • Heritage of the Desert - 1932
  • The Man from Utah - 1934
  • The Lady Consents - 1936
  • Western Trails - 1938
  • The Utah Trail - 1938
  • The Desperadoes - 1943
  • The Utah Kid - 1944
  • The Merry Monahans - 1944
  • North of the Border - 1946
  • Wagon Master - 1950
  • Utah Wagon Train - 1951
  • Robbers' Roost - 1955
  • Quincannon, Frontier Scout - 1956
  • The Girl in Black Stockings - 1957
  • The Big Country - 1958
  • The Man from Button Willow - 1965

  • Dumb & Dumber - 1994
  • Safe Passage - 1994
  • Broken Arrow - 1996
  • Independence Day - 1996
  • Orgasmo - 1997 (Much better than SLC Punk! at mocking Utah culture, by the way.)
  • Animals with the Tollkeeper - 1998
  • SLC Punk! - 1998
  • My 5 Wives - 2000
  • Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back - 2001

There's a lot of fail in that map generally.
New Jersey "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension"
Georgia - "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil"
Mississippi - "In the Heat of the Night"
California - anything but what's on the map. "Terminator" for a start

I could go on but I won't.

Just because they shot them there doesn't mean it represents there.

Besides, do you really want Utah's official movie to be "Dumb and Dumber?"

Remember the Titans for Virginia? Really? Virginia is not exactly prime high school football territory. Give us The Patriot or any movie involving the CIA or Civil War.

Waynes World took place in Aurora, Illinois where I live, not somewhere in the East. :mad:

I commend your urge to resist nerd raging, despite the jeers.

Fun fact: A local ford dealership made lifted Ford 15 passenger vans for the production of "Twister". After the movie wrapped the production company donated the vehicles to the local boy scout council... We got to use them and they were awesome. Imagine this with a 6" lift and huge tires....

Sweet. I also like the Icelandic style too.



:p


If you Google StreetView around the Lotus test track, you can find this parked on the side.
