VIDEO> All the Lovely People

I have driven at a lot of drift events, and after several years there is an aspect of them that becomes standard procedure. Anyone who has driven events is familiar with it. You wrench on the car late the night before, you wake up early with no sleep, you drift, you change some tires, you drift some more… you get the idea.

But the one side of drift events that never seems routine to me is the time spent with my friends. I always seem to remember who was at what event, and what funny stories and crazy antics went on in the pits. As the years pass by, I sometimes barely remember how fast I entered a corner, how well I ran the course, or even how close a tandem battle was. It is the time with my friends that leaves the lasting impression.

This collaboration between myself and Will Roegge is an attempt on my part to try and explore that side of drifting. The human element behind a sport where cars may come and go – but the camaraderie remains.

  1. -100 for getting a Beatles song title incorrect
    -10000 for using a completely inappropriate song, because you got the title incorrect

  3. I loved it. Also, it takes me back to Will’s Don’t Stop video that really inspired me back before I was making decent drift videos. Great cinematography, effects, editing, song choice was a little off but in the end worked great in my opinion.

    every one is dress all fancy on there gay fix gear bikes haha, when i go to the track every one is usually dirty and smelly

  5. That is one of theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee best videos I have ever seen showcasing drift. The art behind the video as well as the song choice is phenomenal. It is more than just a drift video but something more artistic. Amazing job.

    The end shot of everyone jumping in the stands is like a classic Toyota “Oh what a feeling!” jump 😛

  7. @ Jeff: The name of the song is Eleanor Rigby. I wasn’t trying to use the song title for anything. The track just felt right for this edit. :)

    @ Justin Shreeve: Will really did knock it out of the park on that video. It still ranks as Vimeo’s most-played drift video! Totally insane!

    @ Stephan: This event was the ‘DriftMechaniks Gossip Girl Marathon and Some Drifting’… to attend the event, you had to dress prim and proper. It added an extra element of fun to the event.

    @ Ron B: Thanks for the sincere words! That means a lot!!!

    @ mike peters: Likewise, buddy! I need to get out to Texas with the BMW!

    @ Kid Karola: OMG I totally forgot about those commercials! That is awesome!

    I dont think Jeff was refering to the title of the song, more a comment on the lyrics, as its “all the LONELY people” not lovely

  9. I freaking approve of this edit. It’s a completely different direction and feel from the usual drift videos. Great job Andy! Let’s keep changing the game, because the same game gets boring after a while :)

    yo kinda mad i didnt get off my ass and get my car “driftable” and post on DM more. well theres always drama to be had some where

  11. AWESOME.

    i wish this would have been done 5 or 6 years ago in so cal, cause i have the same type of memories (minus the fast entry speeds and tandem battles).

    The memories from the pits were the best.

    Cars. Friends. Memories. Good Times.

    Great job capturing all of that!
