Real-Life Mad Max-Style War Rig Casually Spotted on the Highway

There is no doubt about it: the people in the car doing the filming have not watched the “Mad Max: Fury Road” movie. How can you otherwise explain driving past a semi looking like that without making the least sounds of excitement? Personally, I blame the music.

All the Mad Max movies have evolved around vehicles, but none more than the latest installment of the series featuring the one-armed Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy in a role that could have been performed by a mute without any additional post-processing. As the name suggests, “Fury Road” is a road movie where 90 percent of the action happens on the move, so the various vehicles play an important role.

The level of effort put into creating the most ridiculous yet awesome things on wheels ever seen on a big screen is astonishing, and even though you may not like the movie, you’ll still remember the huge tanker driven by Furiosa or the sandwiched American cars from the ’50s driven by the fat, ugly villain.

You would then imagine that spotting a semi turned war-rig on the road would make people lose their composure a little more than that. It may not be as spectacular as the vehicles in the movie and not seeing it in the desert but on a highway’s asphalt does take away some of the drama, but that’s till a very valid attempt at creating a Mad Max-styled vehicle.

We have no idea what the backstory behind this truck is, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it were built to promote the movie in a more unusual - and highly efficient, we’d assume - manner. Seeing this thing on the road will surely stick with you, and it may just make you more curious about the movie later on when you come across it.

As for the movie itself, it’s actually the source of an ongoing debate here in the office. I won’t tell you which side of the fence I’m on in fear of backlash, but if you want to see a no-frills all-thrills film, then you can do a lot worse than “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
