A YouTube user with the handle RacingInSlowMotion is quite skilled at stringing together motorsports footage that’s been slowed to a downright sultry crawl. Seeing some of our favorite machines reduced to a snail’s pace is beautiful. One piece that is missing, however, is the sound. Glorious exhaust notes and squealing tires are music to any hoon’s ear. Slow the machines down though, and you need to replace that sound with actual music.
Blake Z. Rong (you remember that guy, right?) sent me a link to pianist Maxence Cyrin covering Where Is My Mind by the Pixies. Yes, we’re talking about “that Fight Club song”. Click past the break to see how it stacks up against footage of racing in slow motion.
(Here’s a hint, it’s f%*king beautiful, and if Blake Z. is Rong – we don’t want to be right)
