Fatboy Slim’s Automotive Equivalents

Toyota Hilux Icelandic Trucks 1 photo
Ever wondered what Fatboy Slim wanted to express through his stage name? We’re not sure what the British DJ was thinking about, but we might have found an automotive explanation.

Before you call us crazy, we’re inviting you to take a look at the two Toyota Hilux Icelandic Trucks in the adjacent photo and think about what we said.

You can’t deny that they’re both fat... extremely fat if we compare them to the stock vehicles, which weren’t quite superminis themselves.

However, if you imagine them flying over the icy landscape at a speed that would require in-cabin toilets for the passengers, the idea of them being slim suddenly doesn’t seem so far away.

What can we add to that? We’d really love to listen to these two tunes on “repeat” all day long!
